This is kind of interesting. It's a world clock which goes through a list of things, each with a counter of how many have happened this year. Starts with population count, births, deaths, goes through litres (gallons?) of oil pumped, tons of CO2 pumped into the atmosphere, illnesses diagnosed, food produced, etc. Oh, and crime and punishment stats - for the US. National debt - for the US. Etc.

At least we get to be on the map in the background, right? But despite the obvious US-centrism of this thing, it's still quite interesting. I've never seen one like that before.

It's Friday. It's been a long week. I'm looking forward to my last free weekend for a while. I have no plans. It'll be awesome.

I will be at Fidels.
