### 8 July 2009 Was an Average BAD

8 July 2009 written in MM/DD/YY format is 07/08/09 and it is an average BAD (Basic Arithmetic Date) because the average of 7 and 9 is 8. 07/08/09 is also a counting date.

07/08/09 had some interesting date/time combinations.

```   time and date:  04:05:06 07/08/09
date and time:  07/08/09 10:11:12
time and date:  12:34:56 07/08/09
```

Arithmetically, 07/08/09 is 7 divided-by 8 divided-by 9 and it equals 0.09722222222222...

Some more BAD (Basic Arithmetic Date) arithmetic...

```   equation:  7 + cuberoot(8) = 9
equation:  sqrt(7 - sqrt(9)) = cuberoot(8)
equation:  avg(sqrt(9)!, 8) = 7
equation:  sqrt(sqrt(7 + 9)) = cuberoot(8)
equation:  sqrt(9! / 8!)! * 7 = 42
equation:  7 * cuberoot(8) * sqrt(9) = 42
...42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"
```

In the computing world, numbers prefixed with zero are usually octal (base-8) numbers. 8 and 9 are not valid octal digits; therefore, 08 and 09 are not valid octal numbers.
