Happy Tenkay-day

An excuse to party every 27.38 years.

  [vote for,

Having withstood my 27th year here on planet Terra back in April, I was mortified to realize that I totally missed celebrating my 10,000 day alive, (September 8th, if my math is right). After all, I watch with a mix of horror and anticipation every time my odometer turns another 10k.

Nevertheless, I plan to party belatedly. But what birthday traditions to create? After all, the first of anything should be planned carefully. Obviously candles are out. The bash plans so far:

Listening to 'Our Time in Eden' by 10,000 maniacs.
Watch 'Ten' on slow motion so that it's precisely 10,000 seconds long.
Driving 5 kilometers to anywhere, and 5 kilometers back.
Drinking 10 ml of 'Bio Remedy' Cough Syrup, (10% alcohol)

       Just watch the famous scene of Bo, and fast forward the rest

       Happy 10^4 [Ray].   

       This is the halfbakery, where's the:
-10,000 day, direct brain implant alarm clock?
-The 27.38 year calendar?
-Laser Projection on to the moon of the names of all people born 9,999 days ago to remind people to party tomorrow?

       I'm *never* gonna run a 10k, and I'd prefer not to be reminded I'd lasted that long either.

       Watch half of "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea"?

       You could listen to the proclaimers 500 times. Then you could listen 500 times more.

       Or watch 2001 five times, and carry the remainder. Carry it where you say?
Mr Burns, Oct 11 2002

       re-create your tenth birthday party.

FarmerJohn, Oct 11 2002

       Gheez! You mean I have to wait until 14 Sept 2006 to celebrate my Twentykay-day?   

       (I'll let the math wizards figure out the birthday)

       If you just missed ten thousand days, you've only got about four years until you reach a billion seconds.
