Rare And Unique Events

I just notice that 1AM this morning we will encounter a unique event that only occurs again in the year 3006!

If you pay attention to the hour after mid night tonight it would be 01:02:03 in military time and the date would be 04-05-06. Very cool. Of course you can have 02:03:04 05-06-07 for next year, but it doesn't start from 01.

Some other unique events that I has seen in my life are:
  1. The presidental election in 2000: closet election ever in the U.S history
  2. U.S's mainland received major attack in 2001 : September 11th socking the nation and the world
  3. The largest evacuation in the U.S history in 2005 when hurricane Rita landed in Texas.
  4. Fourth most powerful earth quake underneath the Indian Ocean in 2004 causing a huge tsunami killing more than 220,000 people.
  5. This is personal: I put my first step in America on August 31st and became its citizen on August 31st several years later.
If you know any other unique events, please post a comment to share with us.

"There is no greater sorrow
Than to be mindful of the happy time
In misery."
Dante's Inferno (Canto 5, line 121)

Lots of people got this wrong (myself included), but it will actually happen next in 2106, not 3006.
