Palindrome Week marks a time when each date can be read symmetrically backward and forward (i.e. 4/13/14, 4/14/14, etc). We are currently in a Palindrome Week, which started with May 10, or 5/10/15, and continues through the week (and technically into the following week through Tuesday, May 19, 2015, or 5/19/15). Here are some other intriguing dates that have been the source of fascination and speculation.

10/10/10 – "Binary 42 Day," or "Decimal Day," as some have dubbed it, doesn't have the negative connotations attached to it that other mathematically distinctive days seem to have. However, some have embraced the uniqueness of this numerically divisible day to foster change in their environment through political action. A Global Work Party has been scheduled on this date by groups seeking climate solutions.
