10,000 days old

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2001 - 12:08 pm PST

Today, January 23, 2001, The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith celebrates his 10,000th day of being alive.  To commemorate this remarkable achievement, on this very special day, Smith will wake up, do a bunch of stuff, and then finally, when the day is done, go to sleep.  A motion to declare the day a national holiday in France was narrowly defeated by 43 votes.
