International Holiday Declared by Blogging Rodent

Go on, it's official. Take the day off.

And as you have your fun today, bear in mind that the world is all that is the case; that what cannot be spoken must be passed over in silence; and that mere metaphysical speculation must be consigned to the flames.
From today's The Scotsman:
"Three of history's great thinkers are born on this day. Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius (author of The Meditations) in 121 AD. The central figure of the Scots Enlightenment, David Hume (author of A Treatise of Human Nature) in 1711 and Austrian Ludwig Wittgenstein (author of the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus) in 1889."
And my local newspaper helpfully reminds us that today is mediocre pop singer Bobby Rydell's birthday.
