For (UK) number geeks...

Thanks to Shaun for pointing out that tomorrow morning, for exactly one second, the time, day, month and year can be displayed as consecutive numbers. This numeric juxtaposition occurs just once every 100 years.

If you miss it (as I almost certainly will!), you could go for second best. If you swap the year and time, at 8 minutes and 9 seconds past 7 in the morning, it will be 04:05:06:07:08:09!

Of course, if you're from the US, or any other country that does their dates 'backwards', it all happened a month ago!

I missed seeing it, but I was awake for it :3 Craziness

I am still seeing it as my clock stopped at exactly that time - spooky huh? ;-)
