More numerical madness for Nostradamus wannabe's to capitalize on. Oh the world is gonna blow up!!! :P
2002-02-20 10:16:02 AM  
Harmonia got a date?
2002-02-20 10:16:10 AM  
This is doesn't even account for differences in date expression styles.
2002-02-20 10:16:42 AM  
Stupid farking canadians, February is the 2nd month, not the 20th!
2002-02-20 10:16:48 AM  
a journal for people who obssess....about EVERYTHING!
2112?! What about Permanent Waves? I think that album is MUCH more deserving of a special day in Canada.

If I ever have a child, I'm going to name it Nostradamus Wannabe, however.
2002-02-20 10:18:52 AM

I can only hope to be around in 2112. Rock on Rush.
2002-02-20 10:21:09 AM  
Fenester: Hemispheres rocked too.
2002-02-20 10:22:04 AM  
Rush rules. New album soon! (They finished recording several weeks ago...)
2002-02-20 10:22:12 AM  
*moves along*
2002-02-20 10:22:32 AM  
More importantly, will the Cubs have made it to the series by 2112?
2002-02-20 10:22:44 AM  
the words of the prophets were written on the studio walls.....concert halls! deer deer deer deer, deer deer, deer deer deern deer deer (the sound of air guitar)

Skwidd: I've got a lot scheduled for 2112 ... can I pencil you in for 2113?
2002-02-20 10:23:17 AM  
Don't forget 10:01 10th month 10th day 1001. That means there was 2 last millenim too.
2002-02-20 10:24:28 AM  
Wow, what a story. I can hardly contain the erection in my pants...
2002-02-20 10:24:36 AM  
Fungus2112: I thought I was the only one with that Rush running around in my head reading that. 100 100 1

We're gonna kick those stupid priests of syrinx's collective azz.
But I'll be dead, I guess.

Neil Peart would be God, if he beleived in him.

"Stupid farking canadians, February is the 2nd month, not the 20th!" It's not the Canadians, it's the US. I think that the US is the only country in the world to use the month 1st (0220) instead of 2nd (2002).

It's also one of few to use the stupid "American" system of measurement instead of metric. Since the US is so gung ho on democracy, why doesn't it switch both so it matches the rest of the planet?
2002-02-20 10:28:28 AM  
odd that a lot of sites are saying that this "will never happen again"

2002-02-20 10:28:35 AM  
[image from too old to be available] Wooo Rush rock on.....

i don't care.
id on'tc are.
ido n'tca re.
i don'tcar e

sing with me:
"Oh Canada. The land where we get bored. Look, at,the date. It's funny, we are floored.
Countries laugh at us. The French spat at us. We've got Molson, we don't care.
We eat back bacon. We love Wayne Gretzky. We end every sentence with an 'eh'.
Oh Canada, oh Canada.
Oh Canada, we stagger drunk, for thee.
Oh Canada, we laugh at dates,,,,,for,,,,,thee!!!!"

Sit down.
2002-02-20 10:29:59 AM  
Everyone reading this sentence will be dead in the year 2112, unless you're a real smart-ass baby
2002-02-20 10:30:29 AM  
Don't lump Rush in with the rest of Canadians. They love the US so much they did a song about NASA.
2002-02-20 10:30:32 AM  
Personally, I rather see perfectly identical b00bies. Preferably 36c's.
2002-02-20 10:32:41 AM  
This is ridiculous. You have to write the date with military hours, and in european format with the day before the month. Not only is this trivial, but it's completely worthless unless you happen to be a member of the armed forces in a european country.

"Take the date. Now, write it upside down, and switch all the zeros with the letter T. Next, multiply the sum of all digits by 7 and hop on one foot. The result won't happen again for 263 years! Isn't that cool!!!!!"
2002-02-20 10:33:42 AM  
what was this all about?
2002-02-20 10:34:49 AM  
In other news, I have a Krispy Kreme doughnut.
2002-02-20 10:35:50 AM  
The world is going to end in 2012 anyway
2002-02-20 10:36:11 AM  
Lbo: Uh, in Europe they do write the date in 24-hour style. Look at the BBC's website. They do in Germany too. Doofus.
2002-02-20 10:36:38 AM  
Here in the good ol' U. S. of A. today is 02/20 , not 20/02! Anybody saying it's 20/02 is obviously a terrorist trying to sabotage our dating system and our computers. We must take swift and decisive action against this "Axis of Julian Evil", or before you know it your ATM will be spitting out Euros!
2002-02-20 10:38:30 AM  
Holy crap! Do you realize that this is currently the first and last time it will ever be 10:35:48 am on 2/20/2002 on the East Coast of the US?!?! WOW!!!
2002-02-20 10:39:13 AM

Never. We'll never submit! We will resist the spread of Canadianism, wherever it rears its ugly head!

"We are the priests. Of the Temples. Of Syrynx!!!"
2002-02-20 10:40:38 AM  
Jph: Oh. Well now I suddenly care about this date business. Yippie.
2002-02-20 10:49:18 AM  
Geddy Lee sounds like Donald Duck on helium on the 2112 album.
2002-02-20 10:52:13 AM  
Yeah, rumour has it the new album will have 3 songs > 7 minutes long, and that Ged's voice is in classic form. Ohhhh yeah. Can't wait...must rock!
2002-02-20 10:52:24 AM  
This is the twentieth month? That explains this "stupid Smarch weather."
2002-02-20 10:52:34 AM  
Skidnuts: I don't know about you, but I plan on being alive and well, residing in the perfectly proportioned clone body which I paid for with President Bush XI's $3,000,000 tax refund check issued in 2080. Long live the wizard!
2002-02-20 10:53:42 AM  
It's amusing because the prat who wrote the article headlines it " Once in a millenium " and then goes on to say it happens again in about 100 years. What a dink.
2002-02-20 10:54:28 AM  
I would now like to officially turn this thread over to RUSH and rumors of RUSH, and let us never speak of the lame original post again.
2002-02-20 10:55:14 AM  
Walkman: we have more money, guns, and chicks with big boobs, so bite me. We'll measure things however in the hell we want to, thank you very much.
2002-02-20 10:56:10 AM  
You have more chicks with no teeth too
2002-02-20 10:56:17 AM  
2002-02-20 10:56:48 AM  
and by the way, rush was played out and old fifteen years ago. stupid canadians.
2002-02-20 10:58:58 AM  
FishBulb will believe in the 'new Rush album' when its in his farking cd player and not a moment before. Or, if someone shows me some links besides 'oh they're working on a new album I think yeah probably' that would probably help me believe a little sooner....
2002-02-20 11:01:27 AM  
Fishbulb, go to and look around in the forum under 'Official Announcements', SRO/Anthem has comfirmed the album is in the process of being mixed, but no dates for release have been announced. Of course, it's probably easier just to wait for it to come out.
