    Default Special times

    7 minutes past midnight is known as 007 o'clock in our house. Well - it always makes us smile when referred to. Other special times (to go along with the classic 'Chinese Dentist') that we have created are - Olympic o'clock (20:12) and VG+ o'clock which is of course 12:45....... any more for any more?

    8:08 always makes me smile
    (And before you ask, strangely enough 9:09 or 3:03 don't have the same effect)

    Not in my book!! LP is still king surely - in the proper VG+ universe?
    (I suppose 7:12 is more comparatively correct though)

    If I'm in bed and suddenly go whoooohoooo (that's an approximation of a spooky noise) then Mrs SK knows it's 11.11. The spooky noise is because it's uncanny how often I turn to check the time when I'm in bed and find it's 11.11.

    Apart from illness, I don´t think I've ever been in bed at 11.11. At night, anyway.
    It's ALWAYS 10.02 when I roll up my sleeves and get down to work in the morning, though.

    There was a Peugeot 309 advert in the 80s where there was a dream and the digital clock read 03:09.

    I would love to see this again, but YouTube has not been my friend. Maybe I've got the wrong car?
