It's binary day tomorrow.

For the first time in 1,000 years, at 10 seconds past 10 minutes past 10 o'clock on the 10th day of the 10th month of the 10th year of the millennium, the time (sponsored by nobody in particular) will be: 10:10:10:10/10/10.

You could look at the clock and say, huh, or, although it's a bit short notice, why not get married? Brides Magazine has calculated that there will 31,000 weddings, 10 times the normal number for a Sunday.
