The Perseid Meteor Shower is at its meteoriest on this night.  As Dave Barry would no doubt point out, "Perseid Peak" would be a good name for a rock band.  Or maybe one of those promiscuous-teens-played-by-pretty-twentysomethings-prime-time-dramas.  The ones that are named after places.  Like if "Perseid Peak" were a mountain near which lots of pretty young people who generate drama and hotness lived.  Not that I watch any of those, but I'd totally listen to the band.
