Today is the 12th of November, 2013.  So this morning we had

08:09:10  11/12/13

in the US.

(I think the method for writing dates dd/mm/yy  like the do in may other places in the world makes more sense.  But no one asked me.)

I wasn't sure what number to put this under.

  -  My first thought was 10.5, the arithmetic average of 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13.  Then I thought of 10.35877, the geometric mean of those numbers.

  -  But then I decided that today was probably the 735,183 since the first day of the year 1 CE based on 365 + 1/97 days per year.  And 08:09:10 am was after approximately 0.3397 of the day had passed.  So I went with the number I used.  (After all, the specialness of the second is based on the CE calendar.)
