Hello, and happy December 10th! Today is fun in several ways.
It is Nobeldagen in Sweden, the day they present Nobel Prizes, which used to come with a special ice cream dish in addition to the prize money.
It’s also International Human Rights Day, so it’s a pretty good day for humanity in general.
Some humans in particular celebrate birthdays today, including computational pioneer Ada Lovelace, American poet Emily Dickinson, illustrator Ernest H. Shepard, actor/director Kenneth Branagh, convicted felon Rod Blagojevich, noted internet personality MacCrocodile, tallest living person Sultan Kösen, and former Masked Singer contestant Raven-Symoné, to name but a few. (Technically, some of them don’t celebrate birthdays anymore, but they’re included here because I like them)
In conclusion, December 10th is a land of contrasts. Have a lovely day, everyone. I’ll be back for my birthday upvotes later.
