I am not sure this is worth saying but if I don't say it now there will never be another chance, whereas I am in a position to be the first to say it here. It was pointed out to me this morning that today is 10/10/2020. Er, in America you say that the wrong way round don't you, but it is still special the same way.

OK the numbering is essentially arbitrary, the only non-arbitrary physical things are dimensionless ratios of a handful of fundamental physical constants, is that right? If and oniy if they were different the universe would be different from what it is, is that right? Some of us could maybe do with reminding. Though there is no special day for that, tomorrow will do.

Hm ... I guess it means we should do everything twice twice.

The only thing that makes this selfie stick out is that it was taken on 11.12.13 at 14:15:16
