in reply to The Perl Review's Date Format Challenge

the date sequence 01:02:03 04/05/06 will only happen once in all of human history.

That sequence uses two digits for the year and will happen every 100 years.

    Assuming a 12 hour clock, it'll happen twice today - 01:02:03 04/05/06 A.M. and 01:02:03 04/05/06 P.M.
