Happy Birthday Earth!

6014 years old at sunset today and doesn't look a day over 4.6 billion.

Have some cake:

Happy Birthday, good buddy.

P.S. How could you have a birthday if there were no days before your birth?

Therefore God.

Coincidentally, I am headed to the Grand Canyon later this afternoon, so I can see the erosional effects of da fludde, watch the full moon rise over the canyon, and celebrate the world's birthday in style!

Must have been a rough 6000 years; looks more like billions.  Maybe a little less time in the sun would be good.

Not to hijack the thread, but while the Grand Canyon might be nice, after all it's just a freaking big hole in the ground!  Now, give me something on a coast, with a nice sand beach, and a drink with a parasol...

And happy birthday world*, and thanks for including big holes and sand beaches, and alchohol, slightly chilled.

Isn't the ocean just a freaking bigger hole full of water?

They're both nice, but I prefer a good book in the shade under a tree.

Fringe?  The Wardrobe points to him being a Lewisite of the Narnianist Sect.

Yes, but the wardrobe connects to a parallel universe...and "encased in earwax" is as Fringe as it gets.

Ah, then I'll take your word for it.  I watched one episode of Fringe, thought it was so-so science fiction (I was hoping for a more x-files show rather than an alternate-Earth series - the cybernetics gave that away), and have not watched any more.  Seeing the coming attractions has actually lessened my desire to watch the show.

It isn't. I come bringing the TRUTH, brother. All Hail the Ineffable Wardrobe.

Say, is that your wallet over there? The Church of the Ineffable Wardrobe needs a new spire you know. Nice house you got here. Lots of expensive stuff that would look bad covered in ear wax. Just sayin', no connection to anything. I guess me and my associates will be going now. That is unless....

Fringe was downright silly the first season (it began life as a "weird event of the week" show) and I lost interest - they were very slow to disclose (or cook up) the parallel universes backstory. It's actually hit its stride this season and has become more interesting and clever.
