This is quite interesting, I quote:


Believe it or not but 8.02pm on February 20, 2002 will be an historic moment in time. It will not be marked by the chiming of any clocks or the ringing of bells, but at that precise time, on that specific date, something will happen which has not occurred for 1,001 years and will never happen again. As the clock ticks over from 8.01pm on Wednesday, February 20, time will, for sixty seconds only, read in perfect symmetry 2002, 2002, 2002, or to be more precise - 20:02, 20/02, 2002.
The last occasion that time read in such a symmetrical pattern was long before the days of the digital watch and the 24-hour clock - at 10.01am on January 10, 1001. And because the clock only goes up to 23.59, it is something that will never happen again.

If you are immortal (like me) or care about healthy nutrition and give up smoking/alcohol immediately you might even live to see 22.2.2222 22:22. This something to look forward to. I still remeber 11.11.1111 11:11. Ah, those where the days!
