Because you can sort on it.

And the date string will be valid for the next 7977 years.

Last fiddled with by chalsall on 2013-03-11 at 23:28 Reason: Make a mistake. It's only valid for 7977 years, not 7978 years.

Might I inquire why it won't be valid for the next 7986 years?

Do speakers of British English actually refer to methamphetamines as "meths"? I suppose it would make sense given the whole "maths" thing, but I had never thought about it...

(edit crosspost, I was referring to 7986 years above)
I realized after I read chalsall's edit, first I did not even think to compute it, I took it as correct, but then when I read the edit I computed in my mind and few years were missing. The mistake is more hilarious because of that edit .

No, this is what we British refer to as 'meths'

HAPPY (MERRY?) PI DAY!!! 3/14/13 - along with many other interesting calendar occurrences, we now have the honor of witnessing the once-a-century Palindromic Pi Day!

You know what they say...only a real *square* forgets Pi Day!
