A long time ago, in a land far away, someone calculated the age of the Earth and came up with +or – 1600. By his calculation, the Earth is 6016 years old today, October 23. The committee for Eschaton: Celebrating Reason at the End of the World has this to say to the Earth:
Happy 6016th birthday, Earth! You sure don’t *look* that old!
In celebration, Eschaton is offering $50 off the admission price for a 3-day pass to Eschaton2012 for anyone who sends the name of the man who “discovered” this to firstname.lastname@example.org
Hurry, this limited time offer ends at 12:00 AM EDT. After all, the Earth will be 6016 years and one day old tomorrow!
