Somehow I have a feeling that this is just pure coincidence but it's cool nonetheless.

Well, I guess that's cool.

On another brighter note, at least I won't have to stand in freezing cold

Also, exactly 95 years to the day after Paramount Pictures was formed (according to Wikipedia).

That's fantastic! That makes me a LOT happier about the push back.

Thanks for posting this!
