It is Goat Week at Modern Farmer, and they have a LIVE, STREAMING GOAT CAM. I don't want to be a downer, but the way this week is looking already—Early! On a Monday! Sweet Christ!—this may very well be the brightest part of it, so I guess keep a tab open and ready.
Jews: Love 'em or hate 'em, you have to admit they have some great holidays, i.e. they fall on days of the year that most people don't normally get off. So go tell your boss that you've got to leave early today to get home before sundown for Rosh Hashanah (pronounced: "rosh ha-sha-nah"). If your boss starts asking questions, just mutter something about "Jewish New Year" or "apples and honey" while idly fingering your imaginary payos; it works every time! Happy New Year, Jews, and Happy Fake New Year, Fake Jews. May God bless us, every one.
Did you know it's a very special day? "Today marks the day the entire planet goes into ecological debt, according to the Global Footprint Network. Dubbed 'Earth Overshoot Day,' Sept. 27 marks the day when humans have used an entire year's worth of the planet's productivity, the Network calculates." Now I feel kind of bad about leaving the A/C running at home. Ah, well, maybe I'll be better about not wasting precious rescources next year. If there is one.
