Huh. I knew that I was lucky to have lived through two palindromic years (1991 and 2002), but who knew that next month we’d actually see a 12-digit palindromic date? That’s right, at 8:02 p.m. on the 20th of February, it will be 200220022002. (Assuming you use a 24-hour clock and the European method of writing the day/month, of course.)
