Makes me wonder if people started to freek out when 06/06/666 came around. It was the dark ages afterall...
or November 11 1111
Plenty of people thought the end of times was going to happen June 06/2006, then again July 07/2007.
Certain paranoid people thought 05/05/05 was the day, but when catastrophe failed to engulf the earth they changed it to 05/23/05.
Of course this isn't the first 08/08/08 to happen, theres 08/08/0008, 08/08/0108, 08/08/0208, should I continue??
The world has yet to end after all of these dates that were supposedly "significant" so I don't see it ending this time around. For all we know
the end of days will happen on April 19/2113. In fact, I'd say the odds of our destruction happening on a date like 08/08/08 are slim.
There just numbers, and if you use a calendar other than the Gregorian, you'll find today is NOT EVEN TODAY!!! The Jullian calendar says 08/08/08
Gregorian is actually 07/26/08 Jullian!!!!
And the Discordian calendar tells us that 08/08/08 is actually Setting Orange, Bureaucracy 1, Year of Our Lady of Discord 3174 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So I'd have to say that calendars just have numbers on them....
