    Last Transit of Venus in my lifetime.

    See it live here, supposed to take 7 hours.

    Very cool...it's in progress now.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess this will be the last transit of Venus in any of our lifetimes.

    Personally, I plan on seeing it next time as well.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Since I'll be cryogenically freezing my head (Just slightly pre/post death) I will probably miss the next couple transits.

    Well, at least until my meager savings account and the interest it can compound above and beyond the expenses of the freezing process will allow the technology to become cheap enough to clone another body they can put my consciousness in so I can be properly revived.
