Twosday

 



もっぱら英語ニュースはYoutubeでウクライナ情勢しか見ていなかったので、面白いネタを見逃していました。アメリカでは猫の日ではなく、TuesdayならぬTwosdayだったとか。

By Megan Marples, CNN

(CNN)Good things come in twos. At least this Tuesday it does.

The date is February 22, 2022. When you write it, 2/22/22, it's a palindrome, meaning it reads the same forward and backward. It also falls on a Tuesday, which is now referred to as Twosday.
It's the most exceptional date in over a decade, according to palindrome enthusiast Aziz Inan. He's a professor of electrical engineering at the University of Portland in Oregon, and he has been studying palindrome dates for over 14 years.

猫の日は感情移入しやすいですが、回文の日だとイマイチですね。

回文 《前後どちらから読んでも同じ語(句)・文; 例:Madam, I’m Adam.》.



OKAY. SOME OF US ARE REALLY EXCITED BECAUSE WE LIKE NUMBERS THAT TODAY FEBRUARY 22ND.
2, 2, 2, 2, I THINK THAT'S RIGHT.
ANA BELAVAL: IS A VERY SPECIAL DAY. IT'S KNOWN AS A POW AND WRONG DAY AND MARLEE IS THAT THE NEWS NATION SMART BOARD TO EXPLAIN WHY SOME MIGHT HAVE A BIT OF LUCK AND OTHERS WILL JUST BE REALLY EXCITED.
I'M ONE OF THOSE REALLY EXCITED 30 FOR NUMBERS. RIGHT.
AND THE DEW SAYS ARE TOO WILD TO IGNORE TODAY. IT'S A NEW KIND OF SUPER TUESDAY. AND I MEAN THE DAY OF ALL TO THAT ALSO HAPPENS TO FALL ON A TUESDAY SO TODAY IS A PALIN DRUM DATE FEBRUARY 22 22 THAT MEANS CAN BE READ THE SAME BACKWARD AND FORWARD LAST YEAR WE ACTUALLY SAW COINCIDENTALLY JANUARY 20TH, WHICH BECAME THE FIRST INAUGURATION DAY TO BECOME A PALIN DRUM DATE AND STRONGLY JURORS ARE SAYING THAT THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THAT YOU THAT THE U.S. WILL EXPERIENCE ITS FIRST PLUTO RETURN. 




THIS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE TUESDAY.
ON THE CALENDAR IT'S 2-22-22, A PALINDROME THAT READS THE SAME FORWARD AND BACKWARD.
EVERY NUMBER IS THE SAME, WHICH IS RARE, BUT ALSO EASY TO REMEMBER.

30分のニュース番組を通しで見るようにしないと、知識の偏りが起こりそうです。
