Today In History: Happy Birthday!

According to Archbishop Ussher, the universe turned 6011 years old today.

Color me skeptical.

My wife has the same birthday as the Universe?

That's interesting . . . and somehow unsurprising. She has a certain way about her . . . sort of an "I contain you and all you will ever know" kind of impression.

Neat.

Well, actually 6010, since there was no year zero and we went directly from 1 BC to AD 1.

Still looks good for her age, though, doesn't she?
