Epic Epoch, Dude

1234567890. Numerologists and nerds are counting the seconds until this number resonates throughout the internet tomorrow (74,999 seconds to go as I write this).

If you don't already have your Epoch Clock ready (we do, here and here), you might want to retain your geek cred by putting coolepochcountdown.com up on the largest LCD you can find or attending one of the many 1234567890 parties worldwide to celebrate this unique moment.

1234567890-day.jpgOn New Year's Eve, each time zone celebrates one at a time as the planet turns, but 1234567890 celebrants will all be cheering at the very same moment, even though the local clocks will read 23:31:30 Friday in Greenwich, England and 1:31:30 Saturday in Johannesburg, South Africa and 7:31:30 Saturday in Kaifeng, China and 18:31:30 Friday here at ThinkGeek HQ (as pictured)!

Happy one billion, two-hundred-thirty-four million, five-hundred-sixty-seven thousand, eight-hundred-ninetieth second of the Unix Epoch! Here's to another billion seconds of uptime!

meaningless icon! But really, shouldn't it be in milliseconds? Of course then the clock would have be to another two feet wide to accommodate all the numbers.

meaningless icon! I think the fact that it fell on a Friday the 13th was kinda spooky.
