My first grandson, Gabriel was born at 22:43 on 05/05/05. One of my friends commented that I should “take that kid to Vegas!”

What makes it even more unique is that I saw Maroon 5 yesterday. Trippy!

Quite appropriate, as telcos seem to be going from “five nines” levels of availability (99.999%) towards something closer to “nine fives”…

05.05.05 comes once in 100 years. The year’s last two digits are the only significant figures. For example: 2005 is written as ’05; 2105 will be ’05 as well.

Even better, it’s cinco de mayo — but i don’t see five margaritas in my near future.

Yeah, but 5:05am happens 24 times over the course of the day, as you change time zones . . .

At the 5:05am wasn’t it quintuple 05s? 05.05.05.05.05 (5th minute of the 5th hour of the 5th day of the 5th month of the 5th year). Of course, at 5pm it’s really the 17th hour of the 5th day, etc.
