The Slowest Song Ever

Thanks to Seth for pointing me to a website explaining John Cage's "Organ2/ASLSP," an avant-garde piece of music that will take 636 years to finish playing.

You know, when Douglas Adams put something like that in the Hitchhiker's Guide, it was a joke. I'll bet scholars all over the world are dissecting every note of Cage's song. And people who read Douglas Adams are laughing at them.
