Why 09/09/09 Is So Special:


Not only does the date look good in marketing promotions, but it also represents the last set of repeating, single-digit dates that we'll see for almost a century (until January 1, 2101), or a millennium (mark your calendars for January 1, 3001), depending on how you want to count it.

Sept. 9 also happens to be the 252nd day of the year (2 + 5 +2)...

Interesting..... It's also Beatlemania or something.... the Beatles catalogue is being rereleased today, fully remastered for the first time. Also a Beatles Rock Band released today. They were supposedly obsessed with the number 9.

Read this. This is why I made the sarcastic comment I did.

Ummm, ok.
Irrelevant. My point was, and which is also why I emphasized on the "single-digit" part, is that your statement did not make sense.
Sorry that I didn't catch your sarcasm over the internet.
