Okay, whatever the eff you're doing tonight take an effing break (wake up, put the drink down, walk away from the computer, leave that poor girl alone for a minute) sometime between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m. EST and go view the Perseid meteor showers, which are at their peak tonight. The best way to do it is to lay on your back and just stare into the sky. I am no expert, but the farther you get from light pollution, the better. The stars will be falling at a rate of 20 to 40 per hour. The time frame might be different where you live.
Here is one thing I know for sure. When you see one--a tiny light zipping through the sky, for that moment, you will believe in magic.
