^ Corrupted politics talk... ? In MY thread?! GTFO
Anyone who thinks a single province, territorial, country or otherwise large-society-ruling government in the entire world isn't corrupt or isn't deserving of much ill repute, is stupid and/or ignorant. That said, any following debate or mention of politics and bigots can read this paragraph that summarizes the suits of the world, and indeed, gtfo.
Political, religious, and ethical questions will continue to arise as long as the subjects are holidays. And I shall continue exploiting them
October 25th(...the day after)
Today (yesterday), we've got a nice 5 holidays.
World Pasta Day
Saint Crispin's Day
Retrocession Day (Taiwan)
Pablo Picasso's Birthday
World Pasta Day is a day of delicious we all should be able to celebrate. Unless you're allergic to wheat (I know someone... poor fellow), there must be some kind of delicious pasta you enjoy, be it "lot'sa spaghetti!!", or lasagna. I'm a man who loves his Italian cuisine, that's for sure. Since an example of my love for pasta is I'll be having lasagna for dinner, this clearly wins my holiday pick of the day.
Saint Crispin's Day is a feast day for the Christians Crispin and Crispinian who were martyred. Another feast day, another "meh".
Sourest Day is National Grouch Day, but not sesame street sponsored; and thus, more legitimate. This day recognizes that without sour, we wouldn't half sweet. A half glass full philosophy with much truth. In the same vein, can't have happiness without sadness somewhere along the line. So, if you were pissed off on the 25th or just-plain salty, you celebrated this without even knowing! Congratulations... I think?
Taiwan's Retrocession Day celebrates the date of October 25th, 1945. On this day, after Japan had to sign an instrument of surrender in WWII, their control over Taiwan was released. Taiwan returned back to the governing of the Republic of China, and has remained as such since then.
Pablo Ruiz Picasso was a very famous painter who's masterful artistry and skill is certainly well deserved; his innovation is nothing to scoff at either. Pablo was effectively the co-founder of the Cubist art movement, which was certainly a huge step in the art community making it's way to modern art. If ya ask me, his most notable skill, however, was his art evolving. A great artist paints with class and skill. A master of the arts changes and continues to develop new techniques and styles one after the other. After every decade or so, his skill would increase, and his style would begin to shift. He certainly is deserving of the surname Picasso.
Oh, and here's a funfact for ya's: his full, FULL name is Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz y Picasso. I shit you not, lmao. You've gotta wonder if he even remembered all that...
So, yeah... My apologies for being a whole day late, everyone. I done 'n ****ed up, plain and simple. =(

Today, we've got a good five holidays.
National Day (Austria)
Perigean Spring Tides
Hillary Rodham Clinton's Birthday
Diwali, or Deepavali, also known as the "festival of lights", is celebrated by two religions for different reasons, something I've never actually heard of. I REALLY don't want to butcher two religions in one paragraph, so... here ya go. >_>;
Austria's National Day commemorates the date of October 26th, 1955 when a provision regarding Austria announcing their independence as a sovereign state; but more importantly, the provision also detailed how Austria would be entirely neutral in regards to military alliances and other military-related campaigns. A National Day to be proud of, I'd say.
Mule Day isn't as stupid as you might think. In particular, Mule Day celebrates the day King Charles III imported countless Mules (Spanish jacks in particular) to the new world, in 1785. It also celebrates how handy the mule was back in the day. Mules can do just about everything a horse can do besides pull a stagecoach; which is to say, their size is their only limit. As much of an ass as a mule can be (/failpun), they're very manageable animals, and aren't utterly stupid. They cost (much) less to purchase, raise, and feed than a horse and were simply more common. Just as the Wild West wouldn't have expanded as it did without horses, the New World wouldn't of developed and built as quick as it doubt without their trusty mules. Oh, and the celebrations involve food and the like. Call me crazy, but this is my holiday pick of the day.
Perigean Spring Tides is the day that the moon is closest to the earth during spring tides; and no, spring isn't referring to the season. The moon's gravitational pull in relation to the earth is what causes tides to change, and thus, the tides can come up pretty fiercely 'round this time. Certainly nothing to celebrate, but an interesting scientific tidbit none the less.
Hillary Clinton's Birthday... Yeah. Meh. If it was Bill's, I'd jump for joy, spread word 'bout how it's the economy stupid, and celebrate my favorite modern president. She certainly doesn't seem like an idiot and might be a fine first female president, BUT, she's a republican. And if any of you know about politics, you know damn well I fall towards being a democrat. Many of her policies make me want to spray her with a ****ing uzi.
Oh, speaking of uzis...
Yeah, she doesn't know what the **** she's talkin' about. Why else is she talking about an issue with a predetermined speech she sure as shit didn't write? Why else does she compare games to booze? Why else wouldn't she also call out violent movies and TV shows? Why is she describing just GTA? That speech, and many more with a topic she probably doesn't even care about are simply tools to gain votes.
I ****ing hate politics... -_-
Er, anywho, who here gives so much as a fraction of a flying **** about mules? Ever seen or been with one IRL?
... I have, and they're surprisingly cool.
EDIT: ****!! I just realized I never posted the 25th's holidays... I was 100% sure I posted it... Why did I think that?! Dx It was only a matter of time before I had a derpaherp memory lapse and I made an epic fail with the thread... =/ Sorry everyone. The 25th will be right before this post.
EDIT2: Post is up.
They're very efficient animals. The serenity of a donkey with the power of a work horse. Raised quite of few of them.Originally Posted by SSBfreakCK
Also, the hatred is towards ignorance, mah boi. As once said by a famous philosopher indeed, "there is only one good; knowledge. And only one evil; ignorance." I can't say I approve of someone who constantly talks out of their ass being president. Lack of knowledge is certainly not a point of view.
