Just wait a century, and ... actually, better wait a little less than a century.

Or wait just over one year when it will be 09/09/09 at 09:09.09.

And then a little over a year form that it will be 10/10/10 at 10:10.10

And the a little over a year...you get the idea.

We have 3 more years of this bliss!

Did you guys have surge in weddings too at 8/8 -08? Numerologists and others like the number eight. Apperently especially big in Chinese culture.

True, that could have been a tip off too. The Chinese very deliberately planned to have the Olympic Games start at 8 minutes past 8, the 8th day of the 8th month in 2008.

Of course, it doesn't happen in the USA, so I'm not sure the American news programmes have mentioned this years Olympics, yet. Thus Sei could be excused for having missed it.

You know... I must be REALLY damned funnny when I'm not looking since that wasn't what I was going for.


Kinda like the Skipper's wife leaving him for Cap't Steubing.

A question for the comparitive socialists amongst us since today is a Sneaky Friday The Thirteenth according to Pogo:

Do the Chinese suffer from Triskadecaphobia?
