Naw, the "range" function doesn't include the final number. This actually makes sense in computer programming for the same reason that the "first" number is always "zero". If you ask python for range(10), it will give you a list of numbers from 0 to 9, which is ten numbers, but "10" isn't one of them.

Doing this mentally so I might be wrong; however I came up with 04/15/2367. You can re-arrange the numbers a bit, however I couldn't come up with a date "sooner" than sometime in the 2300's, simply because we have 12 months, and 31 days, restricting us to two options for the first digit (0, 1) and four for the third digit (0,1,2,3), and under the further restriction of "closest to now", the fifth digit is locked (2), knocking our choices for the third digit to just 3 (0,1,3).

(0,1)(1-9) / (0,1,3)(0-9) / 2 (013 - 999)

Fusillade? Snopes debunked that. Link here


I made no claim as to its veracity. I was just posting mainly to make fun of people who think this kind of shiat means anything.

ABQGOD: ciberido: ABQGOD: Ow My Balls: Frankenstorm: I lost my virginity in 1987. So there's that.

I think I successfully masturbated for the first time that year. Not as impressive, but momentous nonetheless.

I don't know why I'm sharing this info, but same here!
"Successfully"?  How does one masturbate unsuccessfully?

How about you masturbate a little more, enjoy life, and stop being so pedantic? By "successfully" we meant "first time we reached an intentionally-caused orgasm."


Well, considering that you're the one who fails at masturbation, I'm guessing you enjoy life less than I do.

Oh, so THAT'S what the Mayans were talking about! I bet John Cusack feels really stupid right about now!!

It's not news, hence why it's on Fark.


I kinda miss that slogan.

DiosDiablo: cyberbenali: Jenna Tellya: Similar/better question: The last time you could write the date as mm/dd/yyyy using 8 different digits was June 25, 1987. When is the next day that will happen?

07/13/2456

buserror: Shan: Jenna Tellya: Sword and Shield: Jenna Tellya: Similar/better question: The last time you could write the date as mm/dd/yyyy using 8 different digits was June 25, 1987. When is the next day that will happen?

4/5/2013.

Written as mm/dd/yyyy that's 04/05/2013, which has 3 zeros so doesn't work.

Doing this mentally so I might be wrong; however I came up with 04/15/2367. You can re-arrange the numbers a bit, however I couldn't come up with a date "sooner" than sometime in the 2300's,


Of the digit positions that aren't restricted, to optimize for "sooner", the lower digits should go to the more significant position, yielding 06/17/2345 (still in the 2300s, but sooner than 2367).

06/17/2345 is the next one that i figured out.


That answer appears to be provably correct. Both month and day require at least one digit in {0,1,2}. Since these must be unique, only one of the digits {0,1,2} can appear in the year. If we want that to be anytime soon, it needs to be the 2, and the soonest year that doesn't contain a 0 or 1 and doesn't repeat digits is 2345. Once you have the year, just fill in the remaining digits from lowest to highest, and you get your answer: 06/17/2345. Cool problem!

June 15, 2987? Probably not, that was too easy.

Earlier than that (but still far in the future)


Mental logic .... day always contains 0,1 or 2 ... month always contains 0 or both 1 and 2. Year starts with 2 so cannot contain 0 or 1. Must be 17/06/2345.

Wow, if only I knew that I could ejaculate as a baby, I would've played with myself more often.

No, THEY blew it when they decided to make years WITHOUT LETTERS.

Also the first year since 1432 to have rearranged consecutive digits.

Pants full of macaroni!!: Isn't this the year that everything asplodes?

No. That already happened according to the Mayans. However, The Doctor came back and bent Rose Tyler over the Tardis Console Greek-style which caused some timey-wimey paradox thing or something.

At the rate things are going, 2013 will be the first year since 1987 where I'll find it reasonable to defecate myself in public and spend most of my days waa-waaing in the fetal position. The year after that, I plan to subsist solely off of predigested material funneled through a tube by my mother. In 2015 though... THAT'S when things get weird.

THAT'S when the whole enterprise jumped the shark.


ciberido: You are welcome to a free slap upside the head as well.


Aw, c'mon, ciberido, you're good peoples. Don't be That Guy. You're better than That Guy. Even That Guy doesn't want to be That Guy.

(Your point is taken, though.)

Marcus Aurelius: fusillade762: And it'll be the first year in A HUNDRED YEARS to end in "13"!

Read somewhere that the 13 in Times Square has been heavily decorated with good luck charms, just in case.

Just saw this posted on Facebook today (for added numerological panic, if you need it):

Until we imposed a 7 day week on the Chinese on the 1800's, they had a 10 day week, and had no idea what Saturday was.


A lot of Chinese still don't seem to grasp the concept of "Saturday". We may be permitted to hope that they get it someday soon and start pissing away one day in seven like the rest of us.

Is there a term for something even less than insignificant? Because that's what this is. Yes if Total Fark.

Gyrfalcon: 2013 will be the first year since 1987 to ...?

...not be any year since 1987?


Nope.  2012 is was also any year since 1987.  I think you were going for "not be any year other than 1987 and 2013".

Fine, fine, no slaps, then.  Though some pay would pay extra for that, you know.

I believe the word you're looking for is "Fark."
