today's date 9-9-09

it was brought to my attention that today is 9-9-09. then i got to thinking, this will only happen 3 more times, in the next 3 years....
10-10-2010
11-11-2011
12-12-2012

THEN.....it won't happen again for 1000 YEARS! IN THE YEAR 3001 !!
1-1-3001
2-2-3002
etc.

man, we will have been gone for 950 years give or take! unless there are vampires among us. UGH! crazy! what will the technology be like! incomprehendable. i'm sure nasa will still not have sent a unit to the moon. my great great great great great great great great great grandkids will see this. man........ that's deep.

The End of the Mayan Calendar After Dec. 21, 2012

Planetary Alignment Sept. 8, 2040
Will there be an Earth left to have earthquakes?

there has been so much research on this... http://www.greatdreams.com/2012.htm
is just one site. who knows. it is all in reference to global warming, sun spots, and stars dying out, causing a chain reaction to it all, culminating to 12-21-2012 supposedly. this has all been happening for thousands of years, with us breaking further away from the milky way, causing a lot of problems. the mayan calendar has been surprisingly accurate. not saying i believe it...and hope it doesn't happen. it is amazing to think that so much hangs in the balance. these sun spots happening more and more, could be a huge issue with all the other stuff going on. i'm not an astronomer at all, but after the reading and the global warming, and the seasons becoming crazier...who knows! then again, nothing may happen for hundreds more years. just like the earthquake in CA.... or lack there of....thank God.

Re: today's date 9-9-09

So... 999 is the anti-satan, right? As opposed to the 666...

So, today must be the God/Jesus day?

Re: today's date 9-9-09

this stuff is very interesting to me... time travel, etc.....

very interesting. taken from wikipedia...one line of many interesting things....

The five nameless days at the end of the calendar, called Wayeb', were thought to be a dangerous time. Foster (2002) writes "During Wayeb, portals between the mortal realm and the Underworld dissolved. No boundaries prevented the ill-intending deities from causing disasters." To ward off these evil spirits, the Maya had customs and rituals they practiced during Wayeb'. For example, people avoided leaving their houses or washing or combing their hair.


LOOSELY TRANSLATED... zombies will be able to star trek in and out of your neighborhood this week so please board up your windows and doors.... oh, and don't comb your hair...probably not a good idea to wash it either, just because.

Re: today's date 9-9-09

In the UK in 2002 we had a unique date and time occurence because we use the dd/mm/yy format. So at 2 minutes past 8 in the evening on the 20th February 2002 the time and date would have read exactly the same back to front.

20:02 20/02/2002



Apparently this is the only time this has or ever will happen.

This is probably silly, but it will happen a few more times before 3001...

1-1-01 (which will happen for 2101, 2201, 2301, 2401, 2501, etc.)

2-2-02 (which will happen for 2201, 2202, 2302, 2402, 2502, etc.)

Same goes for 3-3-04, 4-4-04, etc, all the way up until 3001.

Just thought I'd point it out :P

PS- The end of each 100 years will be especially cool: 9-9-99 (standing for 2099, 2199, 2299, 2399, 2499, 2599, 2699, 2799, 2899, 2999, and onwards past the before-mentioned 3001).

That's even assuming the earth lasts that long.

might still occur...


while I agree that the following eleven dates occured when the 60 minute clock division hadn't yet been invented the actual times and dates did occur:
11:11 11/11 1111
10:01 10/01 1001
9:09 9/09 909
./.. ./.. ...
5:05 5/05 505
./.. ./.. ...
1:01 1/01

Re: today's date 9-9-09

In July it was 12:34:56, 7/8/9 for those in the US. Same for most of Europe, just in August. I was aware of it when it slid by, then went back to work.
