May 4, 2006:  Special Hundred-Year Date
Watch for it - this won't happen for another hundred years!

On Thursday of this week, at two minutes and three seconds after 1:00 in the morning, the time and date will be:

01:02:03 04/05/06

That won't happen again for a hundred years.

You may now return to your life...

Robert Wragg, Richard Thiessen & Idske Mulder point out that in Europe, the date string "04/05/06" is short for May 4, 2006...

April 5, 2006:   Special Hundred-Year Date in North America!

But why is May 4th a very special day to the Joe-kster?
