Just an update on the end-of-the-world stuff.
I’ve read that the exact moment of the Solstice is apparently 11:12 UTC, which would put it at 06:12 here in the eastern standard timezone (aka Toronto, New York, etc.)
Clearly that’s way too early for a normal person to be intentionally awake, so my only chance of seeing the world end depends on my insomnia and sleep apnea.
Or I guess if the whole ending process takes more than a few minutes, then I can wake up in time to catch the third period.
Additionally, if you’re planning a big End-O-The-World party for Friday night, you’re either going to be celebrating the world not-ending, or you’re going to miss the whole thing. Depending on how it pans out.
Personally, I think I’ll raise a glass on Thursday night, and hug my kitties extra close.
