Much fuss was made a few weeks ago about the overlap of Thanksgiving and the start of Channukah. Analysts made the point that this won’t happen again for another 70,000 years.

Well, if this frequency is symmetric that means the last time it happened, there was no Thanksgiving, no Channukah, and no calendars.

And, it’s a fairly safe bet that 70,000 years from now, none of those 3 things will exist in their current form anyway.

I wish people would think about these things when making these supposedly interesting tidbits that will get facebooked hither and yon.
