The Accidentally Explanatory Afternote.

There is an online community on Facebook, called "I was alive on 10/10/10 10:10:10".

I will allow that to settle in.
Some more.

This is ridiculous even by standards that do the nose-dive ever so often. 
Thus, the aforementioned chafing of patience. Which, may I add, is still a valued, perishable and exhaustible resource.

Update: 6 hours later, there is now another one called " Today is 10/10/10, won't happen again for another 1000 years so you might as well like it ♥".

Wham!

I am wondering why we bother expecting something better from the human race at all.

That's 0AAA in Hex.

Truly, we were alive on this wonderful date. I see no reason not to celebrate it.

P.S. This and this.

@Antara: Because if the exasperation comes naturally to more than a single person, we can at least agree that there is something very wrong with the human race/the concept of society it has created.


@Alok: Snap! Looks like I missed celebrating 20/10/2010 by just a whisker! Woe is me.


@mgeek: Sure. Let's celebrate every day for what it is. All for it.

And while we're at it, lets please ban all facebook groups advertising each single one.

Oh well, I celebrated it :D

Why celebrate birthdays? Everyday is someones's birthday :P

@Stupidosaur: A person is somewhat justified in wanting to celebrate the day he came into existence. Friends and immediate family too, as they are directly under the influence of, and are benefited by, that person's presence.

A facebook community about being alive on 10/10/10 at 10:10:10 simply annoys me by virtue of the fact, that it throws the hopeless mundanity of the world right in my face. Trust me, I don't need the subtle reminders.
