This is an incomplete list, thanks to Wikipedia. Omissions are intentional. :)

Hmm. Well, I don't know what the deal is with "Equinoctial Earth Day", but the equinox this year will definitely be on March 20.

Duh, I should have specified the timezone. The equinox will occur at 1:48 AM Eastern Daylight Time on March 20. Thus it will be March 20 for most of the world. For folks in Mountain Daylight Time and to the west of there, it will still be March 19.

Passover isn't in March this year because there's a leap month. Purim, however, should be up there.

Actually, Passover would always be in the same month as Easter; unless Easter occurs on the first or second of its month. (Passover is also called Good Friday, and is the day Christ was crucified.)

Easter is closely related to Passover. (Christ was crucified on Passover and was resurrected on Easter.)

Well, obviously 3-14, but to be exact, 1:59 (PM).

Yeah, but how many watches or clocks count in millisec.?

Well......

If you wanted to take it that far, then the exact time you would celebrate Pi would be no time at all. Pi goes to infinity, so it wouldn't last even a nanosecond.

It would exist, but only in a potential sense, it would exist in an infinitely small timespace, a quantum timespace.

It's believed that time may be granular. That is, it may not be possible to measure time smaller than a certain precision. It also may not even be meaningful to talk about times that small.

See link for a relevant Wikipedia article.

there is a limit to the shortest amount of time. I believe it's called Planck's time.

" bring on the phi its an h of alot cooler than pi" from Chris. I believe he got that from the da Vinci code
"no i got that because theres an h in phi and not one in pi but other than that there the same"

shouldn't it be at 1:59:26am as 1:59:26pm is technically 13:59:26? Or am I just a night owl?

Reply to this comment    24 March 2008, 06:02 GMT


Yes, but...

Yeah, but how many people are actually awake at 1:59? 1:59 PM is a much more reasonable time to celebrate.
