Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Saturday, January 02, 2021

forward and backFor Americans, today’s month-day-year timestamp works in reverse:

That’s because it’s only the second palindrome day of the 21st century, meaning that if you flip the day over it reads the same: 01/02/2010. (And, no, this is not another story about Sarah Palin, though it could be since “Harass Sarah” is sort of a cool palindrome…

The rest of the world, with its alternate (and, I think, more logically progressive) day-month-year method of dating, misses out on this palidromic sensation (even though they’ll get their version on February 1). Then again, they also miss out on having Palin on the poli-cultural scene for at least the next four years. So it’s an even trade-off.
