An old nerd joke goes like this: “There are only 10 people in the world. Those who understand binary, and those who don’t”. Regardless of your understanding of that mathematical wordplay, the date of today is quite special. A date with six identical numbers only happens once every hundred year.

If you think Halley’s comet is rare with its appearance once every 76th year, this day is something extra. Adolphson & Falk wrote the song 10010 in 1984, which is close but no cigar.

On the other hand, dates are theoretical constructs by humans. It’s not like every tree on the planet turns pink today. But still, I think it’s cool. I wonder how many babies will have this epic birth date? And just look at that beautiful URL up there!
