Jewish date: 14 Kislew 5770 (Parashath Wayyishlaḥ).
Today’s quasi-holidays: World AIDS Day, Day Without Art.
Worthy causes of the day: “Save Africa's Great Cats and Rare Canids - The Petition Site” and “Tell Harry Reid: Don't let them filibuster the public option.” Also, please note this interesting publicity video: “YouTube - Pink Gloves Dance to Jay Sean's Down for Breast Cancer Awareness”.
Today’s weird thing is the Despair, Inc. 2010 Custom Calendar, available straight from Despair, Inc.. This is the perfect gift for anyone wishing or needing to be demotivated for a whole year. I will not try to explain this; Despair, Inc.’s demotivational posters do a marvelous job of showing what they are trying to accomplish. Enjoy and share the weirdness.
