11/11/11

Today as those of you who have a calendar may have noticed, is the Eleventh of November. Or 11/11/11.
So obviously something significant will happen at eleven minutes and eleven seconds past eleven today. So at 11:11:11 on 11/11/2011, where did that 20 come from? Blast that’s spoiled the perfect symmetry a bit. Possibly something happened 900 years ago on the real 11:11:11 on 11/11/1111? According to History Orb nothing happened. Possibly due to no-one actually using the Gregorian calendar, because it hadn’t been invented. Even its predecessor the Julian calendar was only used by a small proportion of the world’s population most of whom probably didn’t what day it was anyway.
My best guess is that today may well turn out to be the same; see you tomorrow.
