It’s Veterans Day! I’m going to let everyone enjoy Veterans Day in their own ways. Please thank a veteran for their service and remember that our service men and women fight every day for our freedom. Also, I highly recommend reading the caption below the picture in the Wikipedia article about Veterans Day (linked above). Heartbreaking.
Now I’m going to complain about Facebook.
Today, 11-11-11, is going to confuse a lot of people into thinking about other things besides Veterans Day. Because there are four 1’s in the date. It also happens to be my five month wedding anniversary, but I’m more than willing to overlook that for veterans.
Mostly, Skyrim came out today. I don’t know if any of you have noticed, but Facebook has started tracking status updates based on subject–such as Halloween. I assume this is to combat the trendiness of Twitter’s Trending Topics. I made the following update about Veterans Day
I may sound like an old dude chastising all the youngins for their quirky obsessions, and I probably am one of those old dudes (on the inside). But you can’t ignore a Federal Holiday, especially one that honors our veterans.
So, Facebook, if you don’t start showing me Veterans Day updates, I’m going to… yell at you somethin’ fierce? I’ll figure something out.
