Says here it'll be 10:11 p.m. (22:11, if you prefer) Sydney time. Which I believe is GMT+11 during the Southern Hemisphere summer.

I'll probably sleep through it.

Google Translate idiocy of the day: I'm on a U.S. shopping site, on a page whose first three words are "Giorgio Armani Collezioni." (No, I didn't buy anything.)

Google: "This page is in Italian. Would you like to translate it?"

Google usually thinks that my school's page with the absent teachers is in Afrikaans, probably due to the abbreviations used for classes and teachers Not always though, sometimes it can't even determine the language used on the page...

If they're talking about the solstice, Wikipedia says 11:12 UTC, not 11:11.

Yes, but this planet (an invisible planet with no gravity, one has to suppose, or we would have noticed it by now) is supposed to crash into us at the moment of the solstice. What a coincidence!

Yes, peculiar difference between the numbers shown on the search result page and the ones when you open the video...
On the search page it states 988,980,056 views
