The last ten seconds

Imagine that the history of the universe is compressed into one year—with the Big Bang occurring in the first seconds of New Year’s Day, and all our known history occurring in the final seconds before midnight on December 31. Using this scale of time, each month would equal a little over a billion years. Dinosaurs ruled the Earth for almost two hundred million years - from December 25 to December 30 on this time line. Most of our entire written history fits into the last 10 seconds of the year.

Personally I always thought Avon sold cosmetics door to door. Avondale on the other hand is a different matter.

The Earth should be around until next April or so on this timescale. Will we make it anywhere near that? Or like Krogoth's first sexual episode, will our duration be only the 10 seconds prior to the midnight before New Year's Day?

Okay, so we only get 10 seconds, but on the up side I'd dare say we've more accomplishments in or 10 seconds than were made in the rest of the year.
That makes me feel very significant.

Buzzkill Alert!

While very profound, that is a very sobering thought. Thanks I don't feel so happy anymore. (Takes a hit off the bowl.)
