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):

That FB picture is B.S.

March 2014 will have those same days.

And for December, that combination will come by 2018.
 
2012-12-29 07:12:05 PM  
Since 1987 to have four different numbers....nope. That sounds good to me.

Fusillade? Snopes debunked that. Link here

And this is news...why?

2012-12-29 07:14:40 PM  
And 1987 + 2013 = 4000

4000 / 666 = 6.006006

Oh shiat, we dun in for it now!

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.

You should check SNOPES before you believe anything like that (or at least think just a bit).

If you are trolling ... 0.5/10

If you are intoxicated in preparation for the new year, then carry on mate - and hoist one for all us sober schmucks.

Woo hoo, different numbers in 2012!, then it will be 2014, then 2015... 2016... You know, this is a lame post.

They didn't have college football so they didn't need Saturdays.

Hold on. So Fark just greenlighted an article about a tweet about something that was posted on Reddit?

According to this python one-liner, there has indeed been a lack of them lately but there are plenty to come:

[i for i in range(1987, 2041) if len(set(str(i))) == 4]

[1987, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2031, 2034, 2035, 2036, 2037, 2038, 2039]

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

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

The number on this thread, 7509246, is also devoid of repeating digits.

More interesting: Blue moon tonight. The 13th full Moon of the year. But this full Moon has also been a bonus in the sense that we're getting several nights in a row of nearly full Moons.

Yes, I believe it's "C18H27NO3"

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

I was going to say that, but that's also just a more elegant way of stating what TFA actually said.

Shouldn't 2041 be on there as well?

Now now. That won't happen in 2013 either.

But they're not sequential, largest sequence is four (4-5-6-7).
