1, 2, 3, 4: This Is How You Smartass the New York Times

Hilarity: the New York Times' CityRoom blog proudly points out that "it is approximately 5:06:07 p.m. on 8/9/10. A chronographic event of this sort will not happen again for another hundred years. Just saying." How pleased with yourselves you must be, New York Times! How trenchant and witty an observation! Except...you left the opening for Gawker's Sergio Hernandez to drop in with a comment: "Well, actually there is 8/9/10 at 11:12:13." Point, Hernandez. [FK]
