It's also National Missing Children's Day today... but this is so much more light-hearted...

Isn't it National Nerd Day too?

Also the 35th anniversary of Star Wars release. So yes, that makes it National Nerd Day thankyouverymuch.

Fair enough, but National Missing Children's Day is actually a national (US) and International commemorative day (International Missing Children's Day). I love star wars (is wearing star wars woot shirt (tin old school) while typing this) and hitchhikers guide, but I can't help but think a bunch of nerds celebrating sci-fi or towels takes away from the international issue of child abduction.

@countdown: I stole your child while you were up on your soap box. Don't worry, they'll be back by tomorrow-ish.

@bfoley19: maybe when you grow up, you'll realize how tasteless that joke was...

@countdown: you do understand that this is a website for nerds right?

The joke may have been tasteless, but your child wasn't. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.

@countdown: it's also African Liberation Day... you racist.

there are only 366 possible days for holidays (woo leap year). there is bound to be some overlap. Somehow, I don't think the abducted children care that they have 1 day per year to be "remembered"... they'd rather people be out looking for them EVERY day.
