    The 2012 London Olympic Games

    In a very few short months we will be experiencing the 2012 London Olympic Games.

    They run from July 27th to August 12th. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2012_Summer_Olympics

    A little known fact is that August 4th is at the very centre of the London Olympics with 8 days on either side. Perfect symmetry if you like.

    27 28 29 30 31 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

    So August 4th is the 9th day counting from both the starting day (27th July) and the finishing day (August 12th).
    So it is the 9th day twice. 2 x 9 = 18 and 18 = 6+6+6.

    As this year is a Leap Year August 4th is day number 217 in the year. Normally it is day number 216 and 216 = 6x6x6.

    August 4th is the birthday of Barack Hussein Obama, the President of the USA.

    It is also the birthday of quite a few other people, including a Pope, some mathematicians, composers, actors, sports people and even the odd garbage collector.
