In 16 days I will be 11239 days old, the 1358th time I will be a prime number of days old. Next year I turn 1 bilion seconds old.
Celebrating integer birthdays is so last time interval. Here’s how to locate your more obscure and less frequent Days of Mathematical Celebration:
What started as a conversation between myself and James Grime last year was leaked onto twitter and within a non-prime and non-composite number of days, the website had been built by Edmund Harriss and Dan Hagon. Works brilliantly for anniverseries.
A much wider spectrum of calculations, this will let you know when your age is a mathematically interesting number of time units as well as when you’d be an integer number of years on different planets in our solar system. As well as mathematically interesting numbers of other-planet years: I’m about to turn 2^7 mercurial years, it seems.
DO IT YOURSELF
I have been waiting a long time for when I’m going to turn π³ (pi cubed) years old. Because I was born at 04:27GMT it will be at 11:28am on the 24 December this year. I’m giving you ample time to organise presents and themed cakes.
What other nerdy time intervals do people celebrate?
