24th of March, 2020, a big EP anniversary

Postby athletic_forever » Mon Mar 23, 2020 3:53 pm

Hi everybody, this is my first post in this wonderful Elvis Forum... I just wanted to let everybody know that tomorrow, Tuesday 24th of March, 2020 is a date to be remembered by everyone of us that love Elvis and his music one way or another!

Elvis Presley lived in this earth a total of 15,561 days, from the 8th of January 1935 to the 16th of August 1977. If we take this number of days and add them to the date Elvis left us physically then the date that comes out is... yes, you guessed it, Tuesday 24th of March 2020!

So when tomorrow is gone, more days will have gone by than the exact number of days Elvis Presley experiences the wonderful experience that is LIFE.

But he lives on in our minds and hearts, doesn’t he? They say no one is dead until he is forgotten and as far as I’m concerned he will be alive as long as I live!

In his reflection we see ourselves, he is the soundtrack of our lives!

This date reminds me to 24 march 1958: It is the day Elvis was inducted in the US Army; usually you don't celebrate a 62 anniversary of an event.

If I can offer a bit of a summary:

Using a time and date calculator when calculating whole dates between Jan 8/35 and Aug 16/77 results in 15,562 days.

That same calculator adding 15,562 days to Aug 16/77 results in a March 25, 2020 date.

Once March 25th is complete at midnight CST he will have been gone longer than he lived - counting whole days.

For my time zone, PST, that is 10pm on Wednesday, March 25th

Not knowing his time of death makes any calculation using time of day inaccurate but, we can be close.

He was born at 4:35am so his first day is 19.4 hours long. We don’t know the actual time he died but, if we were to guess at 10am his last day would have been 10 hours long.

Taking this into account means he lived 15,560 whole days and 5.4 hours into his 15,561st day.

This would mean at 5:26am CST on March 24th he will have been gone longer than he lived. For my time zone, PST, that is 3:26am.

But, not knowing his actual time of death this calculation is not accurate and could be off by up to 4.5 hours.

So your choice;

- March 25 at 11:59pm CST (this is counting whole days, no “time of day” included.

- March 24 at 5:26am CST (includes birth time and estimated time of death at 10am CST Aug 16,1977.)

- March 24 between 4:54am CST and 9:54am CST. (This takes into account the last time he was seen alive and the time he was discovered)

- March 24 at 10:54 CST (taking into account the time he was pronounced dead)

Whichever way you look at it he died far too young.

Thanks everybody for your replies and warm welcome...

Well, in my place of the world it will be 24th of March 2020, if it’s 25th in other parts it’s just ok to me, I just wanted to make everybody aware of this date, which to me is REALLY IMPORTANT!!! :D

About the pic being a fake, well, yes, I knew, but to me it looks really great doesn’t it? I love it! Never mind, folks, here’s another one, and this is NOT a fake, but one of my favorite Elvis pics!

Deja vu? Yes, but who cares? The other topic was so long ago I can barely remember it! And folks, remember: Before anyone did anything, Elvis did EVERYTHING!

The time and date calculator accounts for leap years.

I think that this year's leap year has probably been cancelled (or deferred). Everything else has been. May will have only 30 days. Or next February only 27.

Ha ha ha !


Well, we've already had 29th February, so a bit late to defer that !

Don't forget there's a lady in France who monitors the Earth's 'wobbles' & decides, once a year, whether to adjust the Atomic Clock by advancing or retarding it a second.

Won't affect the days so much, but will throw the nano-seconds into chaos !

I seriously don't want my nano-seconds messed with. Can't afford to lose any at my time of life.

Doesn't it seem odd that the international Atomic Clock is adjusted each year [or not] at the whim of some Frog Bi- err scrap that - some nice French lady ?

Hi, folks! So really? Is this all that matters to you? This discussion about nano-seconds, time lapses and leap years?????

We are dealing with the late great Elvis Presley, the greatest artist of all time, the man who created the roadmap for any Rick star that came afterwords, for the good and the bad, the only entertainer capable of achieving the feat of having one of his concerts transmitted live by satellite to the world in the pre-internet era, something that no individual artist has repeated ever since!

He must deserve something better, don’t you think?

My post was to just remember him when he will be gone from us for the same amount of time that he lived among us, nothing more, nothing less.

So enjoy the music, enjoy his legacy and keep spreading the news... There’s Good Rockin’ Tonight!

Long live The King!
