Disregaring the origion of the date, is this not at least a rarity???

On this site: http://www.greatdreams.com/2012.htm

They say that the Mayan calendar ends on December 21, 2012. Furthermore, they say it happens at 11:11am.

I took Dec. 21/2012 and made it 12/21/2012. If you put 11:11 in front of that, you get 11:11/12/21/2012. I Changed that to 111112212012. I then converted 111111212012 to HEX, and the result is:

**19DECDCE2C**

Is it just me or does it seem awfully coincidental that the Hexadecimal outcome is almost the exact day of the origional decimal number?

Ooohh ...

Dec ==> Hex

111112000000 => 19DECA9200

If you had the time you could probably play with the "000000" part to come up with even more amazing stuff.
