It's your birthday
and for your birthday I wanted to make you something special.
Look it's you!
Here is what I made you
Your life in numbers
You have been alive for...
But wait, there's more...
How does that relate to animal years?
GALAPAGOS TURTLE YEARS
That's all cool but...
Let's look at something different...
Something you are obsessed with...
Have you ever thought about how much music you have listened to?
Well here's the math
Let's say you have listened to
songs every day
(That's probably a pretty low number... but let's just start there)
for the last 45 years.
That comes out to...
straight months of listening to music
But how many records does that fill up?
How much would all of those records weigh?
equal to this Hyundai Elantra
How many cassette tapes is that?
If you were to string all of those cassette tapes together, how long would it be?
feet of cassette tape
How long is that?
If you were to string together all of the cassette tape, end to end...
then hike to the top of Mount Everest...
then drop the tape straight down...
through a hole in the ground
(yes, a make-believe hole in the top of Mount Everest... just go with it)
and it fell all the way down, past sea level...
it could touch the deepest known part of the ocean...
and go back up again...
You know what's even cooler?
With all that time...
of listening to music...
it doesn't even compare...
to the amount of time you've spent being an awesome dad
Happy 60th Dad!
and keep on rockin'
