Happy Sunday y’all. Today is October 10, 2010, or 10 10 10, or 10/10/10, and a binary day that has techno-geeks excited. Besides, it’s just cool to write 10/10/10 on stuff.
These guys even made a website about 10 10 10 and explained their motivations, “We love digital, but even more so this year because October 10, 2010 is a fully binary date (10/10/10). So we decided to have a celebration; a day to appreciate digital and how awesome it makes our lives.”
10 10 10 is also “A Global Day of Doing.” From their site:
10:10 is helping to coordinate 10:10:10, the biggest-ever day of positive action on climate change, on Sunday 10 October, 2010. From sumo wrestlers cycling to training in Japan to 10,000 schools planting trees in Croatia and Russia, from a carbon-cutting telethon on national TV in the Netherlands, to hundreds of people in the UK sitting down to low-carbon Sunday lunches, this is going to be a really inspirational day. What are you doing for 10:10:10?
So what else makes 10/10/10 special?
The number ten is the go-to number for everything such as “I won ten million dollars,” “I have ten things to do today,” counting to ten, and Top Ten lists such as Top Ten Reasons, Top Ten Songs, Top Ten Movies, Top Ten Jokes, etc. It also equals 42 in binary which is the “answer to life the universe and everything” in some people’s minds, but is a little too mystical for me.
October 10, 2010 is also the birthday of:
Saved by the Bell hunk Mario Lopez (1973)
Pop singer Mya (1979)
Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth (1954)
Do you feel lucky today? Is anything bad/good going to happen?
