I’m childish enough to love small sillinesses and adult enough to admit them. So it is with great pleasure that I am able to share with you the revelation that we are once again in a binary year. Let me explain…
Some dates in a binary year make binary code
, an example being this Sunday 10 January 2010 or 10.01.10. This code equals 38 in binary and it got me thinking what other binary dates equal in binary.
Here’s a few more dates and their corresponding decimal (number) values:
Friday 1 January 2010 010110 22
Monday 11 January 2010 110110 54
Friday 1 October 2010 011010 26
Monday 11 October 2010 111010 58
Monday 1 November 2010 011110 30
Wednesday 10 November 2010 101110 46
Thursday 11 November 2010 111110 62
The most significant binary date for me is Sunday 10 October 2010 or 10.10.10, being my birthday. I was very pleased (squirming and squealing in my chair pleased) to find out that 101010 is the code for 42
, the Answer to the Ultimate question of Life, the Universe and Everything and it seems a bunch of other stuff, just follow the link here
And even in backward places, were the month for some reason comes before the day, my birthday will still be 42. This makes me (and everyone born on 10 October) the Answer to the Ultimate question of Life, the Universe and Everything…everywhere!
Furthermore, because binary as a computer language wasn’t even considered until 1937 way after 1910, and this event has never occurred before and won’t repeat again until 2110, it is absolutely a once in a lifetime event.
