I do not know if this will be published, so I am sharing it with a select few now.

Dan : do not try this at home with Nixie tubes.

Has anyone else noticed that on Tuesday, 5th May, a 7-segment digital display of the date in ISO 8601 format 2020-05-05 ... will look the same in a mirror!  I am currently not allowed to get out more.

Even for Americans! Go figure! Who knew Americans would actually get a notable date correct! I mean, EVERY year they celebrate Columbus Day on the SAME, WRONG, DATE! DOH! Nothing to do with their normal date format either.

Anyone KNOW the reason why? The answer is just two words!
