    Same can be said of your countdown - when it's over, it's over. It just has nothing to do with 12/21/11.

    You know, this whole minus thing is wrong, the way you guys are doing it. The classic countdown, as celebrated in military/space tradition, is usually done in negative numbers--we just don't say it most of the time. But the full form is T (for TimeZero) minus 10, T minus 9, T minus 8 until zero. Positive numbers denote times after the event (T plus 1, etc.) So for John to be using negative numbers, for time since 12/21/11, and Steve to be using positive numbers for time remaining to 12/21/12, is simply backward. You really should swap signs.

    I'm denoting the amount of time left until 12/21/11. And I'm getting three days out of this one:

    No. There's a double negative. We're now at T minus (minus 46).

    And for today:



    I also feel compelled to add this one, which doesn't contain the number itself, but illustrates issues of animal husbandry when wind chills hit -50:

    Dammit, I couldn't find a picture of the actual number. But I can illustrate -51 by its effects, like what happens when you throw a cup of boiling water into the air:

    Seriously, this is all I could find that contains the words "minus 53" together, other than another cool picture of boiling water turning into a spray of ice crystals:

    I feel like this has unfortunately descended into an entertaining yet run of the mill picture-off, rather than a reminder to Steve that the date in the title of this thread was wrong, which was the original intent. (Protip: It's still wrong.)
