16801.141 Days

As of the moment this is scheduled to post, at 0:21 UTC on the 16th (5:21 PM Pacific, 8:21 PM Eastern on the 15th) I was exactly 46 years old. This is of course properly taking into account leap years, the fact years are not even numbers of days, time zones, and the time and place I was born… So I am now 46, although it will be a few hours until most others will admit it.

When I sat down to calculate this date and time, I was actually surprised, because I honestly had thought I was already 46 and was about to turn 47. It is easy to lose track of these things. So I got back an extra year! Yay!

    1971 it was – in the afternoon – happy birthday – see you tomorrow when the rest of the world calculates it is your birthday! :-)

    Happy Birthday, Sam. Seems like the whole family is doing really well. Brandy running for office, Alex having play dates and talking a mile a minute when he feels like it and I think the whole family is due congratulations.So lucky to have Grandma Ruth there also. CanВґt believe that you, the math wiz, thought you were 47!!!

  • Wow, I’m late answering here.

    Mom, yup, but the time rotates about a quarter of a day every year because years are not an even number of days. :-)

    Diane, yes, everybody seems to be doing great! And we are indeed lucky to have my mom here!
