Over the years whenever I have a pending question I typically consult with the one true book of user-engorged world knowledge: Wikipedia.

#1 was 10/23/04 to 7/8/9, all unnaturally sequential in the sense of m/d/y
#2 was 1/15/14 to 2/29/16, the leap year Divorce, a 1:1461 chance every 4 years. And yes, there is also the “15 minus 1 equals 14” equation, too, but I believe that’s a pick-and-choose.
now, #3, occurring on 3/11/17, is all riddled with primes:
- 3, 11, 17 are all prime numbers
- The combinations of 311, 113, and 1117 are prime numbers as well.
- albeit 31117 is not prime (29 2 • 37, the m/d/y format), 11317 is prime in the ordered set of d/m/y
