Numerical Wonder Happened Today

Blink and you'll miss this once in a century event

Looking for a new piece of trivia to impress your coworkers?  Here's one for you:  Today, just after 12:30 p.m. (wherever you are), a once in a lifetime numerical wonder will happen.

The alignment of numbers in date and time will read 12:34:56 07/08/09. (That's "1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9")

And for once, no one seems to think it will mean a darn thing cosmically.

Mathematicians and numerologists agree that it is a simple fact of date and time.  And it only works this way in the United States.  In Europe, they put the date before the month, so there is no numerical miracle happening there -- until next month.

Still it was enough for a 23-year-old in Texas man to put together a Facebook page late yesterday called 12:34:56 7/8/9. 

It immediately got hundreds of people logging on with dozens of members.  Five other Facebook pages on the same subject have since popped up.  And, depending if you use 24-hour military time or not, you already missed the one that happened a half hour after midnight.

Alas, this cosmonumerological event will only last one second, but still, it if find yourself waiting for a meeting or conference call to start today, here is a chance for a once in a lifetime subject to wow those sitting around the table marking time with you.
