I accidently did this on advicenators and the kids were asking how a column could be "last updated" in 1969, and I had to explain to them that I'd accidently given the date() functions a 0 and that Wednesday, December 31 1969 was when time began, so that's what we got. It's the lowest possible date. Everything before 1969 is fake, and if they had suspected that their parents were never children or adolescents but were born straight into adulthood, they were right.
I think they believe me, as well they should. good times.
I'm watching the republican national convention. It's nice. I like republicans. I wish their platform wasn't so anti-gay and anti-abortion and anti-stem cell research. What they're saying sounds so nice and american and true, not like the democrats, who just yammer on about what they could be doing but didn't on the last presidency and probably won't at their next one, either. sigh.
