🏈 Good Sunday morning. A delightful WashPost article points out that today is both Super Bowl Sunday and Groundhog Day. (Spoiler: Punxsutawney Phil sees early spring.)
- And today's date is a rare eight-digit palindrome (reads same, forward and backward), 02/02/2020 — the only one of its kind this century:
Aziz Inan, a University of Portland (Ore.) professor who has a website chronicling 500 years’ worth of palindromes, tells the Post about today's rare configuration — where both MM/DD/YEAR and DD/MM/YEAR are palindromes.
- "The previous eight-digit palindrome like this was 11/11/1111, 909 years ago. We’ll only have to wait another 101 years for 12/12/2121."
👀 P.S. Today is "the 33rd day of the year, which is followed by 333 more days."
