I'm sure that most people won't notice this kind of thing, but this is the kind of thing that always captures my attention...

Apollo 11 was launched on Wendesday, July 16, 1969 and landed on the Moon on Sunday, July 20.

Next Wednesday is July 16, and the following Sunday will be July 20.

39 years later, and the dates land on the same days of the week as they did during the actual flight. That's only happened six times since 1969, including this year.

Just a little oddity... sort of makes you wonder just what goes on in this cesspit I call my mind, doesn't it?
