11-11-11: The last of its kind... | Arts & Culture
It is of course Veterans day, a day to honor and thank all who have served (and are serving). It's also a unique Internet kind of day because of the date 11-11-11. The Internet has responded to 11-11-11 in four main ways that I have seen (apart from thanking Vets).
1. Nigel Tufnel Day. From the great movie Spinal Tap, Nigel taught us that amps can go "all the way up to 11"!
2. Binary Day. This is the top binary day because of the number 1. Since 1911, there have been 36 binary days, and today is the last one for 88 years.
3. Doctor Who Day. The Internet (and specifically Twitter) has decided that 11-11-11 is the 11th Doctor's Birthday. The BBC responded quite positively too, announcing a new (and official) Doctor Who Convention to be held in Cardiff next March.
4. Make a wish day. At 11:11 on 11-11-11 many have said we should all make a wish.

*I have been just informed that in Las Vegas, it is also double down day. Always double down on 11, I am told...
