Well, if you lob off the 2000 from the year, anyway.
Had I been online I could have even posted this at 08:08 in the morning as well but, alas, I was still booting up the PC at the time.
Anyway. I'm sure the rest of us will just shrug and say "That's nice" before moving on, but let us first pay homage to the number 8 on his special day.
8 is a composite number, its proper divisors being 1, 2, and 4. Eight is a power of two, being 23, or two cubed and is the first number of the form p3.
Octagon's have 8 sides. Famous Octagons include:
Octagón, a Mexican wrestler
The Octagon, a 1980 Chuck Norris movie
Octagon in Metal Gear Solid
The Octagon, a building which formed entrance to the New York City Lunatic Asylum
A figure 8 is the common name of a geometric shape, often used in the context of sports, such as skating
> Octagon in Metal Gear Solid
EDIT: Wikipedia is such a good friend:
8 is a magic number in physics
There are 8 planets orbiting the sun
Eight is the atomic number of Oxygen
And spiders, crabs and octopodes all have 8 legs :)
Ive locked it so it cant be deleted :D
