It's 08/08

It's 08/08 today. This is significant. The last time it happened was a year ago. Is it a conspiracy? Have the Government started fiddling calendars?

What does it even mean? Is it 8th of August? Or August the 8th?

I’m not 100% on this, but I do have vague memories of receiving milk on 08/08 at school.

But what is it? 8th August, or August 8th. No one seems to have a definitive answer.

I hesitate to blame him, if only because it’s become fashionable and easy to blame everything on “the Church”. There’s got to be more to it than that.

So what is this:08/08


In the U.K. 8th August, US August the 8th

January the 15th for example in the U.K. is 15/1
US 1/15

Therefore we say it with the date first, they say it with the month.

By God man. You've just opened up a whole new line of inquiry.

That’s crazy. Such a mad date. It seems that it becomes more powerful the more 08s you add. Unfortunately, we won’t be around for the next true 08/08/08 and cannot therefore confirm just how powerful it is.

And as @Hacked astutely observed, at the time of writing their message, it was 08:08 am on 08/08 17 minutes ago.

Quite how they managed to notice that, I do not know. Perhaps they are privy to information that is not easily available to the rest of us.

The significance of that is anyone’s guess. But it makes you think. What will happen on 08/08/08 08:08?

I wonder if every 08/08 even has an 08:08.

And there is still no definitive answer to what 08/08 is. It’s a date. That’s all we know for now, despite Kratos69s efforts.

I distinctly remember different 08/08s when the UK was still properly in the European Union (instead of this bizarre bum in, belly out situation we’re in now). Any thoughts? Were there more of them? Or fewer?

How did you guess lol.
If you call todays date 0808 2020, it connects you to a fax machine. Nobody knows where it is located.
12 years ago it was 08/08/08.

Let’s straighten a few things out here:

1) You are the only person that noticed it was both 08:08AM on 08/08 “17 minutes ago”.

2) Upon revealing this to us, you thought it would be best to “Hide under the duvet.

3) You send us a cryptic link to a YouTube video titled: 808 State - Pacific State (Original Extended Version).

You can see where I’m going with this surely. Did you just “happen” to be on this forum at exactly the right time and date?

Are you a G-Man?

That’s really strange. I definitely received milk in a small glass bottle on 08/08 whilst I was in school. My memories are somewhat muddy, but it happened at least once.

But what you said makes sense. I’m not sure what to think anymore.

Whatever the case, I’m sure we can agree, 08/08 is not a normal date.

Actually - my kids (one is still at school) always have 08/08 as school holidays. Mind you, the youngest one is due back at school this week coming - Thursday this week, then full time the week after.

I mean what you’re saying is plausible, maybe my milky incident didn’t occur on 08/08 at all. But even so, it’s hard to deny that this date is inescapable.
