Happy(?) Friday the 13th! There’s something a bit odd about today, though. Written out, Friday’s date is 11/13/15, three consecutive odd numbers in a row.
Can someone say “bingo?”
To put things in perspective, the next time something like this will happen will be 90 years from now on January 3, 2105, or 1/3/5.
While it may not seem like a big deal to most people, the same can’t be said of retired math teacher, Ron Gorden. Gorden enjoys celebrating “Odd Days” such as these. Today is especially unique since it marks the last “Odd Day” of the century.
How you do you celebrate such a wondrous occasion? Gorden suggests giving a friend a high-five or doing your best to beat the odds.
In case you’re curious, here’s a list of the most recent odd days:
- January 3, 2005 (1/3/05)
- March 5, 2007 (3/5//07)
- May 7, 2009 (5/7/09)
- July 9, 2011 (7/9/11)
- September 11, 2013 (9/11/13)
