Weird and Wacky Holidays

When most of us think of holidays, we think of days like Christmas, Hanukkah, New Years or Labor Day. Most of us don't think of Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day, National Superhero Day or Save the Rhino Day. Yet these observances are just as official as any other holiday. We just don't get to take these days off school.

Where Do these Wacky Days Come From?

Anyone can apply to their government or to the United Nations to have their day formalized. Unless the day is racist, sexist or otherwise hateful, it is usually accepted. This has led to some pretty strange holidays but making these days official also takes up a lot of time in the US congress. Let's check some out!

    Global warming will raise the ocean and bodies of waters. The cities will be flooded, and then frozen over. Someone goes outside, they freeze to death. The remaining survivors will die of starvation or freeze to death.

    In my opinion, I see four most likely possibilities.  >>  Nuclear War/World Wars. >> The universe practically imploding and the sun burning us into oblivion or even another planet/meteorite slamming into us, destroying us entirely. >> Self-destructive tendencies of our own species, either accidentally or purposefully. >> Trump. Which could be the matchstick to the flame of at least two other things on this list.

    I think it's kinda sad that there even actually exist debates where people argue whether someone else's identity is 'legitimate' or not. You know who knows that? The person who identifies as bisexual (or whatever else). Not me, not you, not their parents, not your parents, and no, not any religion. Them. Only them. No one else. That's it. But it is nice to see people expressing support. I'll join in and say, for all the bisexuals out there, be who you are. Let not any one person's judgment distract you from what your true feelings are. “If someone isn't what others want them to be, the others become angry. Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.” ―  Paulo Coelho ,  The Alchemist

    You cannot describe color to a blind person. But they also see things that you can't that they cannot describe to you. I have a friend, Joseph, who's been blind since birth. He says it looks sort of like nothing and everything at once, and that little dots malt into one big dot. He also doesn't quite grasp the concept of "dark" and "light" but he can sense when a light is on vs off. I have a friend who's been blind since she was eight (grenade accident) who says it's like a mix of every color, but it's not quite black or white. And there's no one color she can name of it. But when there's a noise, the "blanket" shifts around where the noise came from, like something's different but you can't tell what.

    In a couple billion years, the sun will die and implode, taking Mercury, Venus, Earth, and possibly Mars with it. Unless the silent death flares get us first. They could happen at any moment with no warning, you know. Scratch that. Trump's gonna kill us.
