Today is the latest day, so far at least, in human history. Never before has the date been later than it is today. Just so you realize how momentous today is. Tomorrow, however, will set a new record for history. It will be even one day later than today, the previous record holder.
Each day in record history has also held this record, albeit in temporary fashion. If you read this post much later than it was written, you will be surprised that this date, so much in the past, was at one time the record holder. How quaint of people twelve days ago to think that they were so late in human history.
