Triple Boxcars

12/12/12. If we were rolling dice, the chance for 12 to come up is tiny, at only 1 in 36 tries. The roll of two sixes is colloquially known as “boxcars.” In the calendar, the opportunity for this date to roll around is minuscule, only once every hundred years. I have dubbed today “Triple Boxcars” in its honor.
