I interrupt this blogging of “Conjugates of Fields ” for an announcement:
Today, November 20, 2013, is my 56th birthday.
That means that, as of today, I have survived:
56*365 days + 14 leap-days = 20,454 days;
20454 * 24 = 490,896 hours
490,896 * 60 = 29,453,760 minutes
28,401,120 * 60 = 1,767,225,600 seconds.
One point seven six gigaseconds old! Time sure flies.
I am having a minimalist birthday today. I figure that I don’t have to do anything to turn 56, other than survive the day, so I’m taking it easy. All I plan is to share a cake with wife and daughter. No big birthday party; I hate the stress. I’d rather treat a birthday as a milestone rather than as a deadline.
