Actually it is 11/11/2011, but people usually omit things.

It felt kind of silly, pre-focusing in macro mode, waiting for 11:11... Well, I've wasted time on more frivolous stuff.

I hadn't thought of that! At least for 11/11/11 and 12/12/12 those commie Europeans will get on board with proper date-notation!

Wait. Now I'm confused. Does 11/11/11 stand for 2011, Nov 11th or 11th Nov 2011? Or is it Nov 2011 11th?

I thought we're supposed to be on an international forum here.
So it should be 2011-11-11T11:11:11Z.

Our forum officially goes by American dating and time, (we're in the US) so it's Nov 11th, 2011 (11-11-2011).

In an amazing coincidence, tomorrow's date will be exactly as unique as today's!

We had a 2-minute silence today at this time (11:11 AM) in school. I was in my physics lesson. We were all being silent, and then about a minute in, someone blurted out "HAS ANYONE FOUND THE EMF FOR QUESTION 6?!!?!!?!".

They are Indian Runner Ducks. Occasionally, you get one with a crest, and it's called a "Bali." That one is Scooter, a male, and the other two are Cheepers and Smiley (females). They are good egg layers, and they eat bugs. We hatched them last spring after my daughter found the eggs at a farm where the kids do volunteer chores once a week.

Note the jar of worms at the upper left (duck snacks for later).

What an absolute tool. I hope they were ridiculed and reprimanded for it.

Wow, it looked like a dollop of meringue. They look like very happy ducks.

Good, it boils my blood when people think to make a joke about such a thing and find a two minute silence amusing.

I was doing my weekly supermarket shop at about 12:30 local time today, and there was an old guy pushing his trolley around in his "sunday best" black suit, a military beret, and about 15 war medals pinned to his chest. I guess he had stopped off on his way home from a local remembrance parade.
