Today may not be a different day for the world, but for those finding interesting things out of the ordinary, it has something unique in it. Today is 10th of 10th month (October) of 2010. So this makes a unique get together of three 10s today. But there is more to it. At 10 seconds past 10 to 10, three more tens will be added to the day twice (am and pm). So we are being bombarded with tens today. Interesting!!
For mathematical wizards, there is more to it, if not by the astronomers. 10 is a binary as well as a decimal number. 1 and 0 are the basic binary digits that make up everything that makes a computer to function. In binary terms, 101010 denote 42. Now if someone wants to relate it with the happy and sad figures of 6 (unlucky for some) and 7 (the lucky number), 42 (101010) is easily divisible by both the lucky and unlucky numbers. What effect it would have, well numerologists may have something to it.
As for the history, there is no significant incident reported ever on the occurrence of three (or six) 10s till date. I remember when it was 8-8-8 or 9-9-9, and many people chose the date for their weddings as good omen or started their business, but nothing extraordinary happened. So we need not be obsessed with such coincidences and happening. All we know is that it occurs every 100 years, and I and you wouldn’t be there to see it happening again in our lifetime. Well that I something a bit sad, but no one has ever lived, except a few lucky ones, to have this day seen twice. So be happy and disregard all SMSs you may be receiving with funny or dramatic announcements.
