Today is Tanabata, a Japanese traditional holiday. (They don't get the day off, though.) To celebrate Tanabata, you write wishes on strips of paper and hang them from a bamboo tree. Theoretically, the Japanese gods Hikoboshi and Orihime will grant your wishes.

Haruhi Suzumiya contends that--since Orihime and Hikoboshi are the stars Vega and Altair--it will take a minimum of 16 years for either of your wishes to be granted. (Altair is 16 light years away. Apparently, since they're gods, they'll ignore the 16-year return trip "as a service".)

(Yes: knowing it was Tanabata today, I watched ep 1 of season two of Haruhi this morning before bed.)
