Time Since Launch is a web site that allows you to commemorate THIS moment in time, when this moment in time marks a significant moment in your life. Use it when you've gotten married, given birth, quit smoking, stopped eating sugar, made a conscious effort to push hate from your heart, or decided from this very second to fill every moment of your life with purpose. It'll provide you with a unique URL to visit in the future to see how many days | hours | minutes | seconds have passed since your moment. Want something more permanent and decorative to mark the occasion? The creators sell a single-use physical version to hang on your wall as a constant reminder.

A neat site, but when looking around the shop where the physical version is sold, one sees such things as a $70 minimalist key chain and a wheelbarrow for you TV coming in at $950. It's... sure something.

From the physical version page:
- "This timepiece is built to count for 2,738 years."
- "Time Since Launch will outlive you."
- "A 20+ year battery life."

I'm afraid if I keep scrolling eventually they'll admit there's a 50% chance it will break during delivery.

I think they're asking for trouble: this is humans on the internet.

I think you're joking, but if not: that's not likely. They ship in custom-fitted Otterbox-like containers. Mine arrived today and they're a gorgeous piece of work. (Then again, I have a weak spot for unusual time-keeping devices. I also have a Durr, and it's among my favorite possessions.)

"Son, I want you to have this timepiece. It has very special meaning to your mother and I, and I think it might have some meaning to you, too. In fact, it's just about as old as you are. We hope you can pass it to your children someday. Anyway, here's the URL."

The phrase "permanent URL" just made me realize I haven't thought of the word "oxymoron" in what seems like years. Did it go out of vogue?

No, it was elected president.
