Today is Odd Day

Yes we can be a little different in Silicon Valley. Too many nerds. Did you know today is Odd Day? You can read all about Odd Day at the home page of Redwood City teacher Ron Gordon but here's the concept...

"Odd Day is []Thursday, 5/7/9. Three consecutive odd numbers make up the date only six times in a century. This day marks the half-way point in this parade of Odd Days which began with 1/3/5. The previous stretch of six dates like this started with 1/3/1905---13 months after the Wright Brothers' flight."

Only six times a century - makes it a pretty special day - although these would be different days in the UK since there the day is first, then the month, so in England it is 7/5/9 - although by now it's actually tomorrow there.....

We had nachos in the office for everyone for lunch today and one of our engineers proposed that we are celebrating Odd Day.
