Ignorance isn’t bliss, it’s pure magic

The AP reports today:

“Chronological Oddity to Hit Digital Clock”

WASHINGTON - Call it a coincidental sign of our digital times or a reason to stay up late and stare at the clock. Either way, early Wednesday morning the time and date will be 01-02-03-04-05-06.

No it won’t. It’s not the year 6, jackasses. It’s the year 2006. The time and date will be “1:02:03 4/5/2006.”

Ooooooohhhhh. Spooky!
