(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.)
