I found this rather interesting and thought I'd share it:

As the clock ticks over from 8:01PM on Wednesday, February 20th, 2002, time will (for sixty seconds only) read in perfect symmetry. To be more precise: 20:02, 20/02, 2002. It is an event which has only ever happened once before, and is something which will never be repeated. The last occasion that time read in such a symmetrical pattern was long before the days of the digital watch (or the 24-hour clock): 10:01AM, on January 10, 1001. And because the clock only goes up to 23.59, it is omething that will never happen again

That's really interesting. I had no idea.:confused:

I think we will have one of these this year at 11/11/11 at 11:11 but we have to leave out the "20" of 2011 to get it. Close enough right? If we do that, we will get two in the same day.
