Car milometer
I always like it when my milometer (odometer for our American cousins) shows a palindromic number, such as 1331 or 25452. Some are better than others. The best are those which you could rotate and they will still read the same, like 82128 (the 2 on my car display has rotational symmetry). I amuse myself by working out the next palindromic number from the current readout. I am at over 100,000 km now so it's not so easy. If I am just a few km off the next one then I will drive an extra loop to get home, just to see it turn up and not have to wait until the next day. The next one will be 111111 which will be very special, and will probably deserve a small celebration, particularly as I will have to wait another 1100 km to see the next.

I like dates like that. My son was born on Remembrance day at 11am so this year his birthday was the perfect 11:11 11/11/11

My first, sort of pearost!

hehe, boob...

Edit: If only I'd have waited a minute (and 0.4mpg) and it'd all be palindromic!

Oh yes this^
and I am waiting eagerly for 444,444 to come up. It's the next big number and I'm already at 438500. V8 motors for the big numbers!

I'm almost at 111,111 but that is much less impressive than yours. Miles or km?

I hope the old girl will make it to at least 500K before expiring, the engine is still sound and gets a regular oilchange.

I hate it when I miss a good milestone
My old car did 250,000 miles, and I missed it by three miles! Sob.
