Sigh...

One day Americans will realise that people in the rest of the world watch their capers on this day, and just /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif

One of the things we Americans are good at is adopting other peoples "significant days" as an excuse to party.
For instance:
St. Patricks Day is a much bigger event here than in Ireland.
Cinco de Mayo (5th of May) is the date of a (very) minor victory over the French in Mexico, but here in Texas, it borders on a state holiday.
Tomorrow night, over 100,000 people will jam into 5 blocks of 6th Street in Austin, Tx. wearing weird costumes and consuming vast quantities of alcohol.

Glad you dig it.
Of course, turned "up side down" or viewed from another point in space, and it's another shape. (The Witch Head Nebula that is.)

Just think, somewhere else in the Milky Way, the "Tralvornians" on the planet "Buzakh," are celebrating the holiday known as "Glumph." One of them posts a picture on their "internoot" of the "Zorg Head -- Space Cloud!" The Tralvornian laughs: "Beautiful! It looks just like a Zorg!" (While looking at what we call the "Orion Nebula.") /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

Well, he's onto us. We'd better abduct him and conduct bizarre experiments of a sexual nature on him so as to destroy his credibility.

Just look at what we did to Christmas and Easter.

I missed Boole's birthday, this year, though.

Great picture that is very appropriate to this week, I'm sorry I didn't find this earlier actually. :(
