« on: December 06, 2012, 07:30:43 pm »

 
Dear All,
 
How many might recognise that Dec. 2012 has 5 Saturdays, 5 Sundays, and 5 Mondays!!! O0 :-)
 
Next time is 824 yrs. time, but don't think many of us will be around to see it!!! {-) {-) {-)

The next 'December' with 5 Saturdays, 5 Sundays & 5 Mondays will be in 2018!.

Will the date 12/12/12 ever happen again.....apart from the one in a parallel universe of course. {:-{ 

Yes, 12/12/12 will happen again 2112, which will also provide a  palindrome with 21/12/2112


... furthermore, as a bit of other info., the up coming 12/12/12 will never ever happen again!!! - so, make the most of it!!! {-)

Yes it will, every 100 years on 12th December 2112, and the 12th of December 2212... and the 12th of December 2312.... 2412.... etc

But then again next year there will be a 11/12/13, which wont happen again for a 100 years either.  As eye catching as 12/12/12 may be its just another date.  It was the same with 11/11/11, 10/10/10 or 6/6/66 or 7/7/77, 01/01/01 and so on and so on so its not really anything special is it?  Actually a common every year thing in some date form and just a date at the end of the day.

How about 20:12 on 20/12/2012 then. That isn't going to happen again, unless you go hopping around the world's time zones!  :-)

Neither is any other specific time and date. The only difference is that on certain times, the numerals we use, happen to be arranged in what we recognise as something approaching a 'regular' pattern.

Just like this thread has developed from a mistake in the OP, and paraphrasing mikearace, 'its not really anything special is it?'

Dear All,

Out of curiosity, a brief analysis has concluded that there is a 'regular' combination of different days. It seems, at a glance, that 2 x 5 is the most numerous, three second, and three last). There is a very useful website that gives about the next 50 yrs of calendars!
 
To use it in point of fact, 2018 holds the highest combination of most that I have seen thus far.   
 
Where the 824 yr. thing comes in I do not know, so can only email the person who emailed me about it in the first place this am.! {-)
 
My, how time flies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! {-) {-) {-)

Quote from hoax slayer  http://www.hoax-slayer.com/december-2012-money-bags.shtml

Quote
Brief AnalysisIt is perfectly true that December 2012 has 5 Saturdays, 5 Sundays and 5 Mondays. However, such a combination occurs far more often than every 823 years. The last occurrence was in December 2007 while the next occurrence will take place in December 2018. In fact, any month that has 31 days will have three consecutive days that occur five times in the month. Such combinations are commonplace and occur each and every year. This message is a revamped version of earlier - and equally spurious - chain messages.



Before sending on chain letters its always a good idea to use google - if all the chain letters circulating the internet were stopped, it might just help websites like this one speed up a bit.
