KC - Facts About 11-11-11 - Purrfect Same-Number/Repunit Palindrome

Hi effurryone!
I's putting on mine Teknickle Tortie hat fur this post.

Yesterday, 11/11/11 at 11:11 and 11 seconds, 
the date and time were a purrfect same-number palindrome
That means it reads the same backwards and furrwards. 
 And that won’t happen again fur anuffurr 100 years.

Well, akshully, it happened again at 11 pm iffen you don't observe military time. 
Hee hee.

Anuffurr way to say it... yesterday was a repunit palindrome!  
REPUNIT stands for REPeating UNIT
and refurrs to a number that contains only the digit "1". 
So iffen you write yesterday's date as 11-11-11, well, it was a repunit day!

Ok, this is a bit much... 
I's gonna roll over and take a nap now fur Sleepy Saturday.
Love & Purrs, 
KC
