A little brain teaser I've just dreamed up!! :-D

The number 682 has a special significance today, why? :?:

With a potentially endless numbers of association possible in the maverick mind of varying degrees of obscurity, I wonder if your thinking has turned to Base 2 today, and its representation of the decimal 682 being thus...

1010101010

Today being 1010 (DDMM) elicits some connection between 682 and todays day/month

Many ran 10Km on the 10th day of the 10th month yesterday...

Just to be different, I ran 12Km on the 11th day of the 10th month instead...

First one I wouldn't have got was K, then Q, V, X, and Z may even have struggled with L so round about the same.

They used five of them on the Pointless episode broadcast today. I got the "U" I like a stamp and they make a nice colourful collection.
