Anyone taking today off to celebrate?

I would assume that MV is already baking.

I thought I smelled something in the air on my ride to the bus stop this morning... Boulder is just a hop skip and a jump away from here.

Hilter was born today, in 1889 and the Columbine shooting happened today in 1999. Yesterday was the anniversary of the OKC bombing, in 1995, Cardinal Ratzinger became the Pope, and my first, and last, psychotic girlfriend was born in 1980.

Yep, two crazy days...

Might well have started as a rumour, but it is celebrated daily and yearly. At 4:20 today, I expect many people in BC will not be working haha

I heard they had to stop commercial flights over Boulder on 4-20, afraid the excessive smoke would jam jet engines.

One of the comments on a news article brought up a good point.

The girl scouts should arrange it so they sell their cookies around 4/20. Think of the profit they could make!
