Rare date of 12/13/14 won’t be seen again for 100 years

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP-Mod.) — It’s rare. It’s orderly. And when it comes to remembering an anniversary date, it’s as easy as 12/13/14.

Saturday is Dec. 13, 2014, and it represents the last sequential calendar date for at least 20 years — Jan. 2, 2034 (1/2/34) — and another 89 years if waiting for Jan. 2, 2103 (1/2/3).

But for those orderly freaks out there, that’s not to mention if you factor in the clock side of the calendar. If you watch the clock, it can get pretty obsessive. At 9:10 and 11 seconds, you have 9/10/11/12/13/14. But for those who don’t watch the ticking of the clock, 10:11 a.m. will be the time to screenshot a phone or computer. You’ll be able to see 10/11/12/13/14.

If a person has a heart set on commemorating the next 12/13/14, make sure that heart can stand another 100 years on earth to make it to Dec. 13, 2114.

For cryogenic fans, it’s 100 years until 2114, when 12/13/14 can happen again.
