Let's face it, pancakes are full of win and epicly delicious (Kira would agree with me). This ain't no Bacon Day, but celebrate Pancake Day regardless. Your tastebuds will thank you. Hell, have some bacon WITH your pancakes! Now, there's a reason why pancakes are so popular. Believe it or not, a sort of very basic pancake used to be made and consumed by prehistoric civilizations via a large heated slab of stone or clay; that's right, pancakes were born before Jeebus. You know that means they're awesome, and no ****in' wonder they're still a beloved foodstuff to this day. So whether you like 'em with syrup, chocolate, bacon, jam, WHATEVER, they're delicious and deserve this holiday in the fullest. PICK OF THE DAY!
Peanut Cluster Day celebrates those delicious peanut-chocolate confections that're REALLY ****in' good; those with nut allergies have my sympathy. The peanut cluster become quite the popular sweet 'n salty treat 'round 1912, mainly thanks to the GooGoo candy company. Most peanut clusters these days are nothing more than chocolate and peanuts. But these guys started off their peanut cluster business with caramel, marshmallow, chocolate, and obviously peanuts all in one. I've never had one with marshmallow before... I want one. ;_;
International Women's Rights Day is the day to spread word 'bout gender inequality, and contemplate ways to fight it. Since it's first acknowledgement 101 years ago in 1911 (ohai Red Dead Redemption), quite a bit of progress has been made; or at least, in modern first world countries. Rural lands and territories where freedom is still just a dream exist en masse, and likewise women's rights are still piss poor in some places. Logically, as the UN tends to do for worldwide holidays like this, the theme of this year's IWD is the rights of third world women. Last year, there were a few UN-made holidays directed towards rural people in general, actually. They've certainly got the right idea.
... 'Course, the damned feminists have to go and ruin the day for everyone. blehhhhh
World Kidney Day is a day of awareness 'bout kidney disease, failure, etc. Sure, "you can live with just one" as everyone says without concern. If one kidney goes while you have both, your second one may soon follow on the way for ****'s sake. Kidney failure, while not fatal the first time, is still serious. And the variety of other in-born or acquired kidney diseases n' such are as well. While I'd also love to talk 'bout kidneys as food, that's... not part of WKD's agenda.
Agriculture Day is an awareness day of... well, yeah. In a day where a ridiculously high percentage of people in first world countries aren't growing any of their primary food (if not any at all), people tend to forget where their store supplies come from, and how it gets there. Obviously modern agriculture is required for the modern world to function as it does, so today is more important than it sounds... Although, I'm still annoyed with the USDA for ****ing with the food pyramid. They increase daily grain consumption, but not protein... blehhhhhhh. Whores.
Proof Reading Day is the day to proof read EVERYTHING you write; fat ****ing chance. I normally don't double check my typing or writing, and I can't say I'll care to either. If you don't do it anyways, why the hell do it for a day? GTFO!
Girls Write Now Day is the day for the youngin' females to... write? ... ... ... What? Oh, right. GWN is actually an organization that decided to make themselves a self-promoting holiday. GTFO!
Organize Your Home Office Day is the day to clean your home office... Once a year... ... ... Yeah, no. Not only is it directed at only HOME offices, but once a year? There're a lot of GTFO!-worthy holidays today. So yeah, GTFO!
oh my godddddd my sources are being ****ing stupid lately
So, what're y'alls favorite toppings/filling for pancakes? I'm perfectly happy, and pretty much prefer, plain pancakes with either light amber honey or light amber maple syrup (not the ****in' imitation garbage you get in supermarkets blehhhhhh).
