Jewish date: 10 Shevaṭ 5770 (Parashath Beshallaḥ.)
Today’s quasi-holidays: Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day, A Room of One’s Own Day, Opposite Day, Burns Night.
Worthy causes of the day: “Demand Quality Pre-K Educators - The Petition Site”, “Keep Health Insurance Accessible for Americans Aged 50 and Higher - The Petition Site”, and “action.firedoglake.com | Tell House Progressives: Stand Up for Real Reform, Vote Down the Senate Bill”.Today’s weird thing, submitted by Barry, is “Escalator Fail or Exercise Win?”.
I have no idea if this is real or not. Enjoy and share the weirdness.
