So sorry for TL:DR there was lots to tell in my tale of how the Apple logo and name came to be

So sorry for TL:DR there was lots to tell in my tale of how the Apple logo and name came to be |  TODAY IS THE 181ST DAY OF THE YEAR OR JUNE 29TH IN A LEAP YEAR. IN A NON-LEAP YEAR THAT DAY WOULD BE JUNE 30TH TOMORROW. THE WAY IN WHICH THESE DAYS ARE PALINDROMIC CAUGHT ME EYE. SO I DECIDED TO LOOK AND SEE IF THERE WAS ANYTHING SPECIAL ABOUT THEM. AT FIRST WHAT I FOUND MAY SEEMS LIKE A STRETCH BUT PLEASE READ ON. WOZNIAK A FOUNDER OF APPLE COMPUTERS TESTED OUT HIS FIRST MACHINE ON THIS DAY IN 1975. 22 YEARS LATER APPLE ITSELF CELEBRATED THE LAUNCH OF THE I-PHONE ALSO ON THIS DATE. IT'S JUST SUPPOSITION ABOUT THE FOUNDERS MARKING THIS SPECIAL DATE, OR NEAR TO IT. BUT THEN I FOUND THIS. WITOLD HUREWICZ (JUNE 29, 1904 – SEPTEMBER 6, 1956) WAS AN AMERICAN MATHEMATICIAN. "HE TRIPPED AND FELL [TO HIS DEATH[OFF THE TOP OF A MAYAN STEP PYRAMID DURING AN OUTING IN UXMAL, MEXICO."; SO PERHAPS THE SUPPOSITION ABOUT THE EASTER EGG IN THE 'CENTRIC' PALINDROME DATE WAS RANDOM. IT IS PLAUSIBLE THAT THOSE ENGINEERS FROM YEARS AGO WERE MAKING A PLAY ON HISTORICAL DATES AFTER ALL? HUREWICZ LITERALLY WAS A HIGHLY KNOWLEDGEABLE MAN - HE CONTRIBUTED FUNDAMENTALLY TO WHAT TODAY IS A BRANCH OF INTENSE INTEREST TO FOUNDATIONAL MATHS - WHO "FELL" OFF AN ANCIENT TEMPLE TO HIS DOOM. WHAT COULD BE MORE SYMBOLIC OF THE STORY OF EVE OFFERING THE APPLE TO ADAM AND THEIR ARCHETYPAL FALL FOR CONSUMING TOO MUCH KNOWLEDGE. BUT HERE IS THE KICKER. WOZNIAK ET AL CLAIMED THAT THEIR PRICING OF THE APPLE AT $ 666.66 WAS COINCIDENTAL. NO ONE SERIOUSLY BELIEVES HIM AND UNLESS YOU ALSO SERIOUSLY BELIEVE THAT THEY WERE SATAN WORSHIPPERS THEN IT WAS CLEARLY A JOKE. BUT WHY SINCE IT IS NOT THAT FUNNY? WHY  RISK A COMPANY ON A LARK. BECAUSE IT WAS TOO FUN AND CLEVER AND TOO IMPORTANT AND POINTED TO OUR PRESUMED EATER EGG. WHEN ASKED [ALSO FROM WIKIPEDIA] WHY HE LISTED THE DEVILISH PRICE HIS COVER UP POINTED TO THAT PALINDROMIC DATE: '...THAT HE CAME UP WITH THE PRICE BECAUSE HE LIKED "REPEATING DIGITS".'; IT'S PRETTY CLEAR THAT W'S INTERESTED IN REPEATING DIGITS, WHEREIN PALINDROMES REPEAT THEIR FORWARD SEQUENCE OF DIGITS BACKWARDS, LED HIM TO PALINDROMIC DATES. SO REMEMBER HOW ON NON-LEAP YEARS THIS DAY IS THE 180TH DAY OF AN AVERAGE YEAR? THE 30TH. WELL WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT THAT DAY? IT TURNS OUT IT BECAME TO BE KNOWN AS ASTEROID DAY BECAUSE OF THE TUNGUSKA EVENT. THIS WAS THE LARGEST MODERN ASTEROID IMPACT EVENT. IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY AT THE APPLE LOGO THE LEAF IS THE ASTEROID AND THE IMPACT IS THE BITE. | image tagged in story,apple computer,asteroid,palindrome,theory,dates | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
