The Astronomical Society of the Pacific has declared 12-12-12 Anti-Doomsday Day in celebration of rational thinking and reasoned discourse. Today is the last date for the next 88 years when every number will be the same. Thousands of couples around the world have booked this day for their weddings, and women in places like India have booked in cesarian sections for their children to be born on 12-12-12.
