Merry No Thumb Day!

As you might have guessed by the title of this post, today is National No Thumb Day.

What is no thumb day?
No Thumb Day is when the nation as a whole takes part in not using their thumbs in an effort to see how the pioneers with no thumbs had to live.

You really aren't allowed to use your thumbs?
That's right, you aren't allowed to use your thumbs for any reason.

What about-?
No

So, what's the penalty for using your thumbs on No Thumb Day?
Nothing. Just like you aren't punished for not being Earth on Earth Day.

How did No Thumb Day come to be?
It was created by Evan and Whiny for the following reasons:
-to raise awareness of what the thumbless pioneers of the 70s had to go through
-to challenge themselves in yet another inane way
-to show the world just what happens to their minds in AP Computer Science

(MAKE WAY FOR THE ALMIGHTY SIDENOTE!!!!!!!!)
AP Computer Science is the greatest class in the world for raising your GPA. It is an AP class so good grades count one point more, and it's super easy to get an A in because it's a Java programming class.
(THE ALMIGHTY SIDENOTE ACKNOWLEDGES YOUR ATTENTIVENESS AND INFORMS ME THAT YOU WILL BE AMONG THE LAST TO DIE)

Why would anyone want to recognise No Thumb Day?
The great thing about No Thumb Day is that even the mundane becomes challenging. For instance, I am typing this without my thumbs.
Other fun things to do on No Thumb Day:
-drink soda
-write
-open doors
-draw an oscelot (You know, the kind with an S in their names with the boingy tails and go MOO)
-use a fingerprint scanner
-play baseball
-fire a handgun
-go on covert sniper missions in Guatemala
-hitchhike
-perform open heart surgery
-operate heavy machinery
-give a thumbs up sign

(NOTE TO OTHER SELF!)

(SHUT UP!)

Wow, the world would be a lot better if no one had thumbs, wouldn't it?
Yes, yes it would. The world's crime rate would lower and the world would be alot more entertaining.

I apologize to my middle school typing teacher for not using proper keyboarding technique in the process of typing this entry.

Your father should be summarily executed post-haste for not mentioning this on his blog. I would have been SO all over this.

(I read this entry with my jaw touching the floor, by the way. You are everything that I imagined your dad was when he was your age. Take what you will from it.)

Only because it's true, I'm afraid.
:)
Wait, he doesn't play bluegrass gee-tar yet, does he? So he's not completely like his dad at that age...
