Actually the math says the picture should be at 1:59.26 so you are early by 25 seconds. Boo-ya!

But seriously, I ain't mad at ya. Ian looks so excited - I would never want to take away from that. ;)

The way I look at it (call me Captain Pedantic) the shot was 25 seconds early or 12 hours late. On the other hand the guy in the shot looks like he'd be really fun to have a beer with.

Argh. I only went to five decimal places. Now I'm sad.
