12-12-12, A Day To Remember

I know what you're thinking, "Woah a post on Wednesday, what's up with that!?" First of all, please never use a question mark and an exclamation point together again. It's very tacky. Also, don't worry still a new post tomorrow, but today was so special, I had to write one.

Yes, dear readers, today is December 12, 2012 otherwise known as 12-12-12! What, you may ask, is the significance of the 12-12-12? Well nothing really except that is a really cool date and the last triple repeating one in about 80 years! Thus, I have decided to commemorate it with this special blog post!

Some fun facts about 12-12-12:

-Some have declared the day National Microphone Testing Day, saying, "testing 1-2-1-2-1-2. Is this thing on?"

-12 is the atomic number of Magnesium, which shortened is Mg. Thus, this is Mg3, which is also a type of German gun, Rheinmetall. Who says this blog isn't educational?

-Also, by the same theme as the last one, the 12th letter of the alphabet is L, so this is L-3, the symbol for L-3 Communications Holdings Inc. Is this a sign that you should invest? Probably not.

-Some have expressed fear about this date. Yes, I know you see it too. 12-12-12 is just 6-6-6 X2, and anyone with hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia knows that this is the sign of the devil X2. Coincidentally, it is also the sum of all the numbers on a roulette wheel. You gotta love Wikipedia.

-It is officially 9 days from the end of the world according to the Mayans. Then again, they also used to sacrifice humans to avoid bad fortune, so I'm not sure how trustworthy they are (Thank you once again Wikipedia).

So there you go, some key facts about 12-12-12 that everyone should know. I hope this has helped make this special day 12X better for you (see what did there?). Tell me what you think below.

PS On the note of not so important things that look special, is anybody else excited to see whether Gangnam Style makes it to 1 billion views before the end of the year? Tell me in the comments below!

  1. Yes, everyday is a special day and needs to be remembered for some odd reason but this depends on what sect you belong to. Will the world end according to some in a few days? I'll do my best to let you know after the event, of course. Well, some people say that the dead can speak to you, so like I said, if you are still alive and I'm dead then I'll come back to tell you all. (I'm in a silly mood right now) sorry.

  2. CUTE post - I love it. Although, I've totally avoided this "gangnam style" thing. Love the little bits of trivia!

  3. Here is to 12-12-12 some believe its brings us closer to the end, To me it is another day the man upstairs will let me know when the end is here. I try live each day to the fullest.

  4. Sir Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia, you are officially a dork. Loved it, thanks. :)

  5. Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia ... LOL I had to google it. Wikipedia to the rescue yet again. The day is almost over here, just one hour left to go. Nothing special happened except maybe Adam Sandler's butchered spoof of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" on the 12/12/12 concert.

    Now to google "gangman style" ... yup, this is definitely an educational blog. At least for moi.

  6. Gotta love Wikipedia! What would we do without it? :)

  7. Yea, I was never interested in the Mayan culture although we had these sessions about the, when I was in grade 6.

    That would be cool if it did make it to 1 billion. It has really cool dance steps and although I can't sing the lyrics, I still like it!!
