Fang Talks

Sugoi programming onii-chan!

So today I had the joy of experiencing 08:09 10/11/12.

It wasn’t any different from any other minute, but it’s still cool that I noticed that was the case. I always find those nice number patterns in dates and times and all interesting. I know I’m not the only one who pays attention to these things, but that brings us the question, why do we even care?

For example, people get married on specific dates just because it seems cool. But do you really want to stress out to get the big gig happening on one specific day? Sure the date’ll be easier to remember, but that’s pretty lame a reason. You don’t really see much of it, either.

Even worse, people insisting on their child being born a few days early or late so that they’ll have a nice birthday date. Ugh, some parents just aren’t fit for that kind of stuff. What has to come has to come, you shouldn’t rush it or wait it out.

Then again, neatly ordered dates are just that, neatly ordered. And it gives me trouble not giving out a squeal of joy whenever I see them.

    Deliberately having your baby on a certain date is wrong but for weddings? I quite like that.

    I do love neatly ordered dates, and I get a smile when I see that the time is 12:34, but it’s not like I look out for it. The only reason my mum was getting worried round about when I was going to be born is because I was born five days after her, and she didn’t want to have me on her birthday. As for dates of weddings and what not, it depends on the date. Originally I planned to get married on the winter solstice, because it was the winter solstice. If it’s just a random date that you think sounds nice, then I wonder about that. I like ordered dates, but I like order.
