So it's expected to be pretty epic in some places. United States will get some decent viewing (Nasa says 20-30 meteors per hour). Asia goes crazy with up to 500 per hour in some places (average of 200-300).
Are you going to watch it? Just if you were wondering - here's an estimate of how much meteor action you should see. http://leonid.arc.na.../estimator.html
Personally, since there's a giant spike (3x than from the rest of the night), I'll get up for like 30 mins and check it out.

I can't understand that astrobabble. What time do I need to go outside and look up?

Between 2:15 and 2:45 east time (5:15 - 5:45 for west, assuming it's about the same time).

A few friends and I drove out to a really remote park in the middle of nowhere and hit the ground with sleeping bags, since it was subfreezing out. I saw a few little streaks and two large ones with huge trails. I also saw a star (or satellite?) that appeared to be moving around. Odd.

Nice. Was cloudy here so I didn't even go out to see anything. :(
