Cool & Geeky Stuff on The Last Binary Day of the Century

Today, November 11, 2011 - perhaps better known as 11.11.11 - is the greatest of all binary days and is likely the last one you'll ever experience. The next one isn't coming for another century.

A binary day is a date that consists of only 1's and 0's when written in in month/day/year format. According to smarter people who know these things a Binary Year has only nine of these dates, which means there are only 36 binary days in a century. There was one 10 days ago.

However, this binary day is rare because all six numbers in the date are 1's. Stange things are said to occur on binary days. Interesting fact via Fox News: The last time it happened, November 11, 1911, temperatures in the U.S. fell a jaw-dropping 60 degrees over the course of a single day, causing blizzards and tornadoes.

The next Binary date? Not until January 1, 2100.
