  1. This gave me a flash to my extreme youth, wherein the CBC at 1:00 in the afternoon, daily, said “The beginning of the long dash marks 1:00 (in whatever time zone.)” I recently chanced upon the fact that this still happens, after all there decades. Perhaps that’s the principle benefit of the CBC – it provides a sense of security…

    I think I heard – from you? – that 2012 is the end of the Mayan Calendar’s long count. Isn’t the world supposed to end then?

  2. Yup. Well, end as we know it. I will be 54 years old and ready for a change, I imagine.
