Happy New Year

I hope all of you enjoyed celebrating the recent change in the Gregorian calendar.

As you look forward to the new year and reconsider your life, remember that the calendar system you and I hold so dear is completely arbitrary and has no real connection to anything.

(If you'd really like to celebrate something, just wait until 3501 when the Julian date changes to 3000000 - now that will be something to celebrate!)

That's sort of how I feel as well. A few people have asked me what my New Year's Resolutions are, and I tell them that I don't have New Year's Resolutions because I can set goals whenever I want.

I don't think it's completely arbitrary. But I am totally with you on celebrating the Julian calendar. Gonna party like it's 2999999...
