Fists of irony
My birthday is coming up. yes, there's that trivial Imperial Earth cycles-around-Sol thing coming -- I'll be celebrating my 34th next week -- but more importantly, I'll be reaching my first binary gigasecond (230 seconds) a week or so after that (some time late on the evening of the 14th or the following Sunday morning).

One doesn't get much rounder than this:
1000000000000000000000000000000 seconds (binary)

any suggestions on the appropriate way to celebrate this auspicious sum?

Iain M. Banks fans may note that a binary gigasecond is probably a bigger "over the hump" measurement in the Culture than turning 40. Actually, considering the lifespan and willingness of Culture citizens to body-mod, two binary gigaseconds is probably considered barely-out-of-puberty.
