Why is Mole Day celebrated on October 23rd? MathematiciansPictures spokesperson Green explains, "because the quantity represented by a mole is written in scientific notation as 6.02 x 10^23. The time and date corresponding to this, using the American system of writing dates, is 6:02 am to 6:02 pm October 23rd."

Yes, I did google it. No way did I have a clue on that one!

This is one of the (very) few things I retained from my sorely-lacking high school chem class.
