Twitter, @DrunkHulk specifically, tells me that in about 90 minutes it'll be 5:06 p.m. At seven seconds after that minute turns, it'll be 5:06:07 on 08/09/10 (pardon the butchering of AP Style for that sentence for effect).
If my math is right, that sequence won't happen for another 100 years ... so let's make it count.
Now, if you can't think of anything especially cool to do at that moment, you have a few other times and dates to look forward to, including:
Me, I'd like to say I'll be solving world peace, typing the word's most profound tweet or reaching the apex of a mountain.
Nope, I'll either be here at my desk, staring at the computer, grabbing a frozen pizza from Whole Foods, or, if I can swing it, sitting in traffic on Lincoln Memorial Drive.
Anyone out there doing anything special at 5:06 p.m., or it just another minute of another day?
