Odd countdown date Saturday

    An odd countdown date will occur Saturday, when the calendar turns to 12/11/10.

    Although it is the 11th year in a row for such an occurrence, to the best of my knowledge, it won't happen again until the year 3000.

    We had the following countdown dates since the millennium began:
    12/11/10 - December 11, 2010
    11/10/09 - November 10, 2009
    10/09/08 - October 9, 2008
    09/08/07 - September 8, 2007
    08/07/06 - August 7, 2006
    07/06/05 - July 6, 2005
    06/05/04 - June 5, 2004
    05/04/03 - May 4, 2003
    04/03/02 - April 3, 2002
    03/02/01 - March 2, 2001
    02/01/00 - February 1, 2000

    Ironically, the last one before the 2000 date would have been 12/11/10 in the year 1910.

    (OK, give me a break. I'm recently divorced and have too much time on my hands)

    Well, then I plan to make Saturday an extra special day, because I'm thinking I probably won't be here for the next one.

    Wouldn't it happen again on Feb. 1, 2100?

    Apparently Harley doesn't have too much time on his hands. At least not to figure out the math on this one...

    I'm still gonna party Saturday like it's 12-11-10.

    I'm still trying to figure out the irony of its occurrence in 1910.
