Earth Sandwich

ZeFrank is at it again, both with his crazy antics and with his steady stream of updates on his video blog which is called The Show.

One video that is worth crawing your attention to is the first ever making of an earth sandwich. An earth sandwich is just like a ham sandwich only with the earth in the middle instead of the ham. Neat heh? Check it out here.

Fun facts

If you visit paulsadowski.com, there are two things to check out. The first is the What Your Name Means "calculator". The "facts" that you are given from typing in your name are kind of lame, but it's slightly fun anyway. The second, and more interesting "calculator" is the Birthday Calculator. When I input my birthday, I get the following interesting facts:
You entered: 7/1/1979

Your date of conception was on or about 8 October 1978 which was a Sunday.
You were born on a Sunday
under the astrological sign Cancer.
Your Life path number is 7.

The Julian calendar date of your birth is 2444055.5.
The golden number for 1979 is 4.
The epact number for 1979 is 2.
The year 1979 was not a leap year.

Your birthday falls into the Chinese year beginning 1/28/1979 and ending 2/15/1980.

As of 6/9/2006 3:31:25 PM EDT
You are 26 years old.
You are 323 months old.
You are 1,405 weeks old.
You are 9,840 days old.
You are 236,175 hours old.
You are 14,170,531 minutes old.
You are 850,231,885 seconds old.

Your age is the equivalent of a dog that is 3.85127201565558 years old. (Life's just a big chewy bone for you!)

There are 22 days till your next birthday
on which your cake will have 27 candles.

Those 27 candles produce 27 BTUs,
or 6,804 calories of heat (that's only 6.8040 food Calories!) .
You can boil 3.09 US ounces of water with that many candles.

In 1979 there were approximately 3.1 million births in the US.
In 1979 the US population was approximately 203,302,031 people, 57.4 persons per square mile.
In 1979 in the US there were approximately 2,152,662 marriages (10.1%) and 1,036,000 divorces (4.9%)
In 1979 in the US there were approximately 1,921,000 deaths (9.5 per 1000)
In the US a new person is born approximately every 8 seconds.
In the US one person dies approximately every 12 seconds.
I also get a number of flaky astrological "facts" that I didn't include here.

The most important thing to come from this information is my excitement for turning one billion seconds old--which should happen in a couple years. Good times, good times.
