Moon Landing Day

Moon Landing Day

There’s a petition going around to make July 20, the anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing a national holiday. The US has a fair number of holidays, however I don’t think we have anything that recognized a scientific achievement. Not a bad idea. Low chance of this going anywhere, but it’s a nice idea.

Why not a holiday that encourages Americans to literally shoot for the moon.

Festivus Time

It’s that time of year again. Time to put up the Festivus pole, enjoy your Festivus Dinner, participate in the Airing of Grievances and finally participate in the Feats of Strength should you be chosen.

The particular episode in question is Season 9 Episode 166 “The Strike”.

If you make a donation, I suggest “The Human Fund”.

Holiday SQL

You’ve got to be somewhat nerdy for this, but if your reading this, you automatically qualify. Perhaps I’ll add to this list when I’m bored. If I have the time. If someone is so inclined, feel free to do so below.

Feel free to give it a try if your geeky enough to do so. I’ll update them to color syntax.
