At the next stroke the time will be…

Where New York Times columnist David Pogue latched onto this fascinating factoid, there’s no telling. But as randomly useless bits of trivia go, this is definitely worth noting.

Pogue writes: Late tonight — specifically, 123 seconds after 1:00 a.m. — the time and date, for the first time in all of humanity, will be 01:02:03 04/05/06.

And, Pogue points out, this moment will never come again.

Well, at least not exactly. In Europe, which renders the date before the month, this singular moment will occur next month, at 123 seconds past 1 a.m. on 4 May. And after that, it most definitely will never occur again.

Wherever you are, it might be just the right moment to find an all-night liquor store and buy that lottery ticket that forms the basis of your retirement plan.

Cool, although I have to wait until next month. Those crazy Americans and their date formats!
