Travel to Europe on December 11. You can relive 11/12/13 there.

Is 1/4/14 so boring?

4/8/16?

Jonas said...

If you find this date numerically interesting, why wouldn't 12/13/14 be numerically interesting?

11/11/22?

Ann Althouse said...

Okay, then, 12/13/14 is the last.

Can we agree?

On the Internet? NEVER!

11/13/12 is numerically interesting to me, being my birthday and all.

MadisonMan said...

How about 01/23/45?

MadisonMan said...

I think 3/14/15 would be pi day, not 3/14/16. There can be a special ceremony on 3/14/15 at 9:26:53.

In my current home of Toronto, Canada, it is 12/11/13.

For us, 11/12/13 doesn't come till next month.

Now before you say there is no 13th month, I'm going by my own calendar that I created which happens to have 13 months.
So, that day is really interesting if you use my calendar.

I'm more partial to Pie Day. Math is fun and all, but pies are delicious.

Or Cherry Pie Day:

Mmmmmm pie.

Please, we still have 11/29/2099, the last prime/prime/prime of the century. So the 'intersting' numbers will continue at least until the last month of the century.

12/5/13 (2nd Pythagorean triple)

12/13/14

5/10/15 (Multiples of 5)

4/8/16 (Powers of 2)

4/9/16 (Perfect Squares)

8/15/17 (3rd Pythagorean triple)

11/13/17 (Consecutive primes)

Lots and lots and lots of interesting dates coming up.

Nihimon said...

5/10/15?

10/20/30?

Seems like there might be a lot more, unless you're willing to spend the time and effort defining the rules...

Mary Beth said...

01/12/35 or 11/23/58

The Europeans put the day first, then the month and year. So they'll have this glorious celebration next month on December 11.

How about 04/04/16? Or 10/20/30?

"Is this the last of the numerically interesting dates of the earlier 21st century?"

Here's an interesting question: What is the last day of the earlier 21st century?

Would not that day be numerically interesting?

How about 12/34/56? Oh, wait.

At quarter past 2 this afternoon, you could set your digital clock for 24-hour "military" time, and see

11/12/13/14:15:16


You can do it again in 13 months, on

12/13/14 15:16:17

And that's it until after the turn of the century.
