The thought of you has upheld me through all I have endured today, and shall, through fifty times such trouble. Give me your hand. My heart is linked to yours... What, if I am steeped in poverty? You lighten it, and we will be poor together.

May the fourth is a very personal holiday to me, to be celebrated with family and loved ones. Like flag day, or ice cream day, or waffles for dinner day.


May the fourth is different in kind from the other holidays you listed, which are mere excuses for epicurean or xenophobic self-reveling indulgence. This is like, so obvious I can't believe we're even talking about it.

I’m sorry, I don’t socialize with people that disparage monthly waffles for dinner day. #obvsscumintherealestsense

Ehhhh. I prefer a REAL holiday. Like today. Today's a good holiday. Drinking, partying, celebrating the downfall of the Jedi...

You know Vader repented, right? I don't think he celebrates the Revenge of the Fifth with Yoda and Obi Wan (wherever they are).

Also, I'm procrastinating on my last paper by starting The Gulag Archipelago, which I've been wanting to read for years, but never had time. This paragraph pretty much describes every mafia game I've ever been in.

"If any pre-revolutionary engineer was not yet exposed as a traitor, then he could certainly be suspected of being one. And what accomplished villains these old engineers were! What diabolical ways to sabotage they found! Nikolai Karlovich von Meck, of the People's Commissariat of Railroads, pretended to be terribly devoted to the development of the new economy, and would hold forth for hours on end about the economic problems involved in the construction of socialism, and he loved to give advice. One such pernicious piece of advice was to increase the size of freight trains and not to worry about heavier than average loads. The GPU exposed von Meck, and he was shot: his objective had been to wear out rails and roadbeds, freight cars and locomotives, so as to leave the Republic without railroads in case of foreign military intervention! When, not long afterward, the new People's Commissar of Railroads, Comrade Kaganovich, ordered that average loads should be increased, and even doubled and tripled them (and for this discovery received the Order of Lenin along with others of our leaders) - the malicious engineers who protested this became known as limiters. They raised the outcry that this was too much, and would result in the breakdown of the rolling stock, and they were rightly shot for their lack of faith in the possibilities of socialist transport." -Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago pp. 44-45.
