Unix time will reach “1234567890” on February 13th at 5:31pm EST

Get out your party hats! It’s tomorrow, on Friday the 13th, as well. I sense the end of the world!
1,000,000,000 seconds since unix epoch

Unix time, or POSIX time, is a system for describing points in time, defined as the number of seconds elapsed since midnight Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) of January 1, 1970, not counting leap seconds. It is widely used not only on Unix-like operating systems but also in many other computing systems. It is neither a linear representation of time nor a true representation of UTC (though it is frequently mistaken for both) as the times it represents are UTC but it has no way of representing UTC leap seconds (e.g. 1998-12-31 23:59:60).
