World Day of Remembrance For Road Traffic Victims
Revolution Day (Mexico)
Robert F. Kennedy's Birthday
Absurdity Day is the day to **** all logic and reason, and just herpaderp around for as long as you can stand. Act like an idiot and be utterly absurd; sounds like fun to me.
Universal Children's Day is the recommended date the UN presents for the day to be celebrated; and thus, is celebrated by the UN on today. Therefore, plenty of other countries join in this date for the celebration, such as Canada or Egypt. I already covered this day on a different date, so... yeah.
Transgender Day of Remembrance is the day to remember those unjustly killed for being born transgender, be it during yesterday's barely civilized world, or today's still-hate-filled prejudice societies. Hate crimes are as abundant as ever...
Name Your PC Day just because. People name countless other inanimate objects, so why not that thing we drain our non-lives into? I'd name mine PotatOS since it's just as ****ing "powerful" as the voltage from a potato, but still finds a way with that lack of energy to piss me off constantly. -_-; What would y'all name your computers?
Africa Industrialization Day is a day officials and governments of/around Africa look for as a particular day to invest in industrialization, as well as drawing attention to anything that might inhibit said procedures. Might as well make it a "World Industrialization Day" IMO.
World Day of Remembrance For Road Traffic Victims is self explanatory. We all know too many people are victims to drunken drivers, or those who fall asleep at the wheel. Poor souls who look away for a split second certainly don't deserve death as punishment for not having a perfect attention span, either... And to all you drunk drivers and reckless speeders (by reckless, I mean going more than just a few over the limit), a big **** you on this day.
Mexico's Revolution Day, or Día de la Revolución (Day of the Revolution) celebrates the anniversary of the day Mexico cried out against it's dictator tyrant José de la Cruz Porfirio Díaz Mori after more than thirty years of unjust rule, the movement eventually leading to the tyrant being overthrown. We're all familiar with the phrase "Viva la revolución!", and this revolution day is the start of it being so well known. One tyrant falling was met with further opposition in the form of over a decade of civil war. But progress in a land of corruption is bloody; and in reality, it still is. Mexico certainly isn't out of harm's way yet, what with cartels and what not. Regardless, whether or not this "progress" has completely regressed or has been entirely necessary in the name of humanity, such a fierce struggle deserves my respect and gets my holiday pick of the day.
Totensonntag (Sunday of the Dead) is essentially Germany's Day of the Dead, although it's honored mainly by Lutherans and not a truly national holiday. Just like the US, it's supposed to be gloomy and all depressing... Take a hint from Mexico, damnit.
Robert Francis "Bobby" Kennedy: JFK's brother. After the utter shock and despair, and even fear of his brother's assassination, Robert went on in his footsteps and fought for civil rights and other grand things that America was supposed to represent, but at the time, sure as shit did not. Before he could (most likely) win elections, the poor fellow was assassinated by fire arm just as John was. Indeed, progress is bloody work; and sometimes the most important lives in the name of progress are lost. May RFK be resting far more peacefully than what his exit from the world of the living was like.
... I have the urge to play Red Dead Redemption now. >___>;
^I recall you lack a taste for films. I'm sure westerns are an exception, right?
Indeed they are.
Lack of taste? No. Modern movies lacking taste? Indeed. If I preferred movies to gaming, I'd probably be watching classics half of my life; half of those being western classics. :P
Speaking of western classics, anyone so much as heard of Boss Nigger? Yes, that's the actual title, so do excuse my French. ****ing hilarious comedy 'bout a pretty god damn boss black dude back in the days of the racist west. Funnier than any of the shit you see these days, guaranteed. One of my favorite comedies of all time.
The only problem is with a title like that, it invokes controversy through said title alone. You might have a tough time finding a place to watch it; I sure as shit did.
