    Default June 1978

    I remember a local club had a party on that night , they did a countdown the same as for New Year but to 12.34

    that was cos it was then 12.34 5/6/78

    We said so at the time but the club didn't think it would get many punters at lunchtime ( this was in seventies so licensed hours would have been last orders at 3 anyway)

    Any excuse for a booze up

    Looking back at this post and thinking back to that much simpler time - who used 24 hour clock anyways back then ?

    12.34 was either in the morning or night time - 00.34 was still a bit of a strange concept cos digital watches hadn't long been out!

    My wach at the time was for my 18th and lasted me into mid-twenties

    What an anti-climax that was!!!!
    lots of internet theories said "the end was nigh " , "you're doomed etc"

    I sat staring at the time on my mobile and then the big moment came and went with nothing observable happening .


    Unless I'm now existing in an afterlife that's a parallel to my flesh and blood life? ( Sob, whimper, not this for eternity? ) NOOOOOOOOO !
