    02/02/2020 fun facts

    This Sunday is a big day. Not only is it Groundhog Day and Super Bowl Sunday, it's also the first time in 900 years the date is written the same backward and forward. This is called a palindromic day. The previous eight-digit palindrome like this was 909 years ago on November 11th 1111. This palindrome is rare because its universal globally in the format day/month/year or year/month/day. The next one like this will be on December 12th 2121. After that, well have to wait until March 3rd 3030.

    I also broke out 0202 2020 from Hex to decimal

    0202= 514
    2020=8224

    8224/514=16

    sq rt of 16=4

    This is a leap year which occurs every four years and of course, Feb is the month with the extra day.

    Does this have something to do with ancient aliens or the Incas or some such? I missed the last big event while at a dorm party in college that lasted 4 days.
