So as everyone else is ranting about 12 and this kind of date will never happen again in my lifetime,
I thought I would join in too.
I've been looking for a clock to capture the moment but the only one I could find was this....
...on my phone. Taking a screenshot was the only way to capture it.
12 seems to be quite a significant number in a lot of respects and I found the following list in the
The Cincinnati Enquirer
TWELVE NOTABLE TWELVES
12 months in a year.
12 hours on a clock face.
12 inches in a foot.
12 strikes to bowl a perfect game.
12 people have walked on the moon.
12 face cards in a deck.
12 days of Christmas.
12 apostles of Jesus.
12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.(Not that I'd know!)
12 jurors in felony trials.
12 signs of the Zodiac.
12 pairs of ribs in most humans.

I also found another app on my phone which shows timings between 12:12:12 on 12/12/12 and the time and date I was born - and no, I'm not going to check if it's right!!
And what was I doing at 12:12:12 on 12/12/12 - sorting out my wardrobe!!!
