Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
I think BWL is making these days up. The real national/international xyw awareness/activity days are very rarely interesting. There's talk like a pirate day, and there's always a wind up the neighbors day, often disguised as the national holiday, celebrating a time you beat them up particularly*.
It would explain why we're trying our best to come up with some better ones, but even so, they're just not going to hold their meaning without a critical mass of people to do so, and I don't think we're both a mass and critical at the same time all that often..
* Note to any US presidents reading this. It's just one day a year you're supposed to annoy the neighbors and/or former rulers. Given July 4 is connected with the British empire, that's us. You know, that quaint little place surrounding London. Actually, on second thoughts, Canada might be a better option....
