“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”
Well it seems we are all safe and sound. What did the Mayans know anyway.
Slight change of pace here at the fasab blog today. Instead of the usual offering I have instead a special edition of The Daily Blog which I have been given exclusive permission to reproduce as part of this post.
It’s an interesting story and celebrates a great milestone in the history of blog-world.
(The Daily Blog has been reproduced as a jpg file, so if you have any difficulty reading it on this blog just right click and save it to your hard drive and you should be able to magnify it with your picture viewer.)
So there you have it. John Erickson (50) is…. well… Fifty today. Yes folks, he’s been around for half a century, five decades, six hundred months, two thousand six hundred eight weeks, eighteen thousand two hundred sixty-three days, four hundred thirty-eight thousand three hundred twelve hours, twenty-six million two hundred ninety-eight thousand seven hundred twenty minutes, one billion five hundred seventy-eight million seconds, one trillion five hundred seventy-eight billion milliseconds, one quadrillion five hundred seventy-eight trillion micro seconds, one quintillion five hundred seventy-eight quadrillion nanoseconds, or a hell of a long time!
Decades = 5
Years = 50
Months = 600
Weeks = 2,608
Days = 18,262
Hours = 438,291
Minutes = 26,298,720
Seconds = 1,578,000,000 or 1.578e+9
Milliseconds = 1,578,000,000,000 or 1.578e+12
Microseconds = 1,578,000,000,000,000 or 1.578e+15
Nanoseconds = 1,578,000,000,000,000,000 or 1.578e+18
Very many congratulations John, hope you have a great birthday and here’s to the next 50!!!
(and forget about the candles, that many is a fire hazard, try a 50 watt bulb.)
Now as an added birthday treat John, you have a liking for cars so what about a trip down automobilia memory lane?
Remember any of these babies?

Perfect tribute to John. Actually, the John and the alien have a resemblance. Your touch of time is priceless … and the cars. WOW! Well done, and happy birthday John!
Thanks it’s not you have had the honor of meeting somebody who has featured on the front page of The Daily Blog!!!
My second visit to a John Erickson tribute this morning, and one equally as well done as the first (which was Frank’s). Bravo! And a very Happy Birthday to John Erickson!!
Thanks Alex. I’m still LOLing at some of Frank’s comments.
I just visited Guapo’s post. It’s equally good. You guy did a great job of this!
I’m working my way round them now – wonder where John is 🙂
Terrific Job, Fasab!
But where is John’s Vega?
Thanks Elyse. I think El Guapo took care of the Vega situation. My car selection was more of the aspirational variety 😉
But I thought John aspired TO a Vega. You know, from the goat cart.
Gosh I never thought of that…. but maybe you’re right 🙂
With John you just never know.
Isn’t that the truth 🙂
His name will be known to the Mutara Nebula, and beyond.
But um…how old is he again?
Happy Birthday, John!
What a fantabulous post FASAB! I’m sure John will love looking at all those wonderful cars! So clever!
Thanks. I hope you’re right 🙂
Dayyyum, those are some great cars. John should love these. Meanwhile, how have I not known about your blog before? I have much to catch up on.
Well, it’s just one of those things, thousands more manage stay away every day 😉
But now you’re here you are very welcome. Please feel free to visit and browse any time.
But .. but .. that alien is an Asguard – that might even have been Thor! He’s one of our best FRIENDS! We can’t kill him – the Goau’ld will get us! (And…… lost most of the audience. 😉 )
Love the cars. My dad actually had a 63 Dodge Dart – don’t remember a lot of it, except it had a funky push-button transmission! And the 70 Chevy shared its’ snout with the Brookwood wagon we had – HUGE beast, with (oddly) power steering but no power brakes – on a 2-ton drum-brake car! Drove it ONCE – almost pooped myself trying to make the thing stop before we careened into an intersection! (I think I know what part 2 of my “Cares I’ve Known” post will be…. 😉 )
Great stuff, my friend. Thank you, and all your readers, for all the great birthday wishes!
I thought John drove an AMC Gremlin… oh well. Great post, great blog. I am blogrolling you.
He probably has a story about it though! And thank you, thank you, and thank you.
I somtimes wonder what car we would have if we put all the money spent on piles of crap that we’ve driven around.
I once had a ’62 Corviar and a ’53 Henry J. Wow little did I know then that not only did I have a pile of junk but a collector’s pile of junk.
Well, if you were lucky enough to have a genuine AC Cobra lying around you would probably have something worth well north of $5m, but even ordinary stuff is worth quite a bit. You know the kind of thing that was traded in for a couple of dollars 😦
