More Crazy Eights

With all the recent 08/08/08 brouhaha, I noticed that we are approaching yet another eight-date. That is, we will soon be .88888888% into the new millennium. In fact, tonight’s midnight hour marks .8666666% of our way into this new era.

When I called Brubaker on April 1, 2004 to mention that we were “one / third percent” into the new millennium, he thought it was a Jerky Boys April Fool’s prank call, until he did the math.

I haven’t done the math yet for .88888888, but since Jan. 1, 2010 is only sixteen months away, my guess is that it falls near September 11.
