Today, April 3, 2009, marks my 20,000 day here on planet Earth! I have been asked by some, "Why would anyone mark, let alone know, when such an milestone occurs"? Well, it's really easy to know how many days, weeks, months, hours, minutes and even seconds you have been alive with a web site I have used for at least two years. Here's the link: http://www.paulsadowski.com/birthday.asp. This wonderful site allows anyone to insert their birthday and birth year and then know many things about their age. Check it out.
Of course, as a geologist I am fascinated with time. It turns out that I am about 1.728 billion seconds old and so nearly as old in seconds as the Vishnu Schist is in years. That's a pretty amazing thought. My 500,000 hour is coming up quick so I'll be celebrating again! Here's all of the info as of 3:30 PM MST:
