2013 will be the first year since 1987 in which all digits are different from one-another.

In case you were bored of hearing that amazing ‘mathematical’ ~~fact~~ number coincidence, don’t worry – 2013 is mathematical for other reasons. Even though we’ve run out of Alan Turing Centenary year, and the slightly-under-mentioned Poincaré Centenary year, apparently 2013 is both The International Year of Statistics (Statistics2013) and the year of scientific collaboration project Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013. Watch out for upcoming events related to both!

I friend of mine called the 1987/2013 fact the most boring ever heard (I kind of agree). Check this visualization of repeated figures in numbers I’ve made: http://moebio.com/research/repeatedfigures/
