It’s September 9, 2009, or 09/09/09.

This won’t happen again until 10/10/2010 and the single-digit repeating date won’t happen again until 01/01/2101.

If you’re into numbers, especially nines, enjoy!

  4. Anyone remember Danger Mouse? It’s an old British cartoon from a couple of decades ago (at least) about a super-spy/agent who’s a white mouse with an eye-patch, his side-kick Penfold (who was, I think, a hampster), and yadda yadda yadda. It was an obvious take on the James Bond genre.

    Anyways, their “Q” was this german-accented gerbil or whatever (Dr. Squackencluck), and he’d get asked a question, and respond with a variable amount of “nein”, like “nein nein nein”, and it would always the go to Penfold who would have a calculator and who would always say the total…

  5. “single digit repeating date won’t happen again until 01/01/2101″… we don’t count 11/11/11?

    Granted, 12/12/12 might not be a “single digit repeating date”, but if not, then neither is 10/10/10.

  8. My co-therapist on the adolescent unit is having a birthday today. We are “ribbing” her unmercefully. And I “think” the number of “ribs” on the “right” is nine. Nein?

    The feds seemed to think that client number nine enjoyed himself.

  11. I’m just relieved Britain made it through 9/9/9 without an incident like the one we experienced on 9/11.
