For those of us in the USA, most know today as Election Day (AKA Thank Freakin' GOD It's Almost Over Day).
Today marks some other interesting holidays and events, such as:
International Day for Preventing the Exploitation of the Environment in War and Armed Conflict
Gustavus Adolphus Day in Sweden
So while we're all wrapped up in our American Election Day self-centeredness, remember that there's a world beyond our borders.
And yes, I did vote already today. No, I won't say for who. My parents told me never to discuss Religion, Politics or Sex in public, and that advice has served me pretty well so far.
