Literally the greatest coincidence ever
« on: April 13, 2016, 12:27:48 AM »
Today as of my posting this it's April 13th. It'll be Episode 1718 when today's show comes.

According to this: http://www.workdaysuntil.com/7/04/2016 there is 58 business days until the Fourth of July. There's (normally) a show each business day.

1718+58 is 1776.

The episode on July 4th will be Episode 1776. (Assuming Jack doesn't skip a day)

How freaking cool is that??

There's no way that was planned... is there?

Pretty cool!  Too bad the math didn't work out for ep. 1775 to be on 4/19.

He usually does a memorial day special, I think. So that may throw a wrench into the plans. But he will probably miss at least one show between now and then. So that may make up for it.

Wow guys....

It just hit me that the episode on my podcast player wasn't the episode for yesterday. It was an old episode.

Yesterday was 1764.

You actually sat down and did the math on this?

The intros on the last two episodes had to be the most cringe-worthy times in my life, my incredibly obvious mistake going out to 150,000 people  :-X

Everyone understands mistakes happen.  it was a good thought.

It is fascinating how numbers can infuse emotion into subjects.  For example, 1999 was a very strange feeling year.
