    So there's this big deal about 12/12/12.

    What about the other cool dates which I hope to
    be alive to witness:

    12/02/2021

    and Eurostyle 22/02/2022

    12/n/21
    12/11/21
    12/22/21

    most of these being both palindromic and upside-downable.

    And speaking of big deals, regarding 12/21/12, the end
    of the Mayan calendar ... as a kid in the '50s and '60s I
    used to have one of those looseleaf datebooks, and at the
    end there was a supposed perpetual calendar, which worked
    thus - there were a bunch of possible calendars, each
    assigned a letter, and then there was a table of years
    with letters attached to them ... but the table of years
    ended with the year 2000! Did the calendar printer know
    something we didn't, and did the world really end at Y2K?

    12 mph is a possibility, but unfortunately we have southwesterly winds today.

    You did post 12 minutes ago, though.
