When these words reach you, (most likely) it will be...

wait for it...

wait for it...

wait for it...

10/11/12

In the American convention of stating dates numerically.

This oddity won't come again until next year's 11/12/13 in the American convention.
Pop a cold one in honor of such a triviality!
When is the next occurence in any convention of a numeric sequence defining the date?

In just over an hour, it will be 10/11/12 13:14:15 here, and about five hours ago was 07:08:09 10/11/12.
