Today is National Pistol Patent Day (Samuel Colt.......
There probably isn't a long line for pistol patentees at the patent office anymore, not since Samuel Colt and his infamous multi-chamber gun in 1936. So thanks. Mr. Colt, for giving the world another word that just keeps sounding funnier the more we say it. Pistol. Pistol. Pistol.
Hope you all have a GREAT Stinky weekend (try and keep the Stinky consumption and the Pistol celebrations separate)

White Shirt Day honors the men and women who participated in a sitdown strike at General Motors in 1937. These autoworkers helped the United Auto Workers (UAW) union to become the sole bargaining agent for General Motors autoworkers. The strike ended on this day in 1937.
According to the UAW's website, the traditions of White Shirt Day are simple:
* Everyone must wear a white shirt or blouse
* Your white shirt must not get dirtier than your boss's shirt
* Safety and work rules must be followed.
Somewhere along the way, this day evolved into White T-Shirt Day for some people. Except for UAW workers and their families, this UAW event was probably lost or forgotten. Those who chanced across reference to White Shirt Day, most likely created their own version of this day, giving birth to the term White T-Shirt Day.
Please wear a white shirt today. And, honor UAW workers, along with their accomplishments.
Important Note: It's "White T-Shirt Day", not "Wet T-Shirt Day". However, if the T-Shirt is white, you can get it wet today. Or, you can enjoy watching someone in a wet T-Shirt.

A little fact about Umbrella's:
The word "umbrella" comes from the Latin root word "umbra", meaning shade or shadow. Starting in the 16th century the umbrella became popular to the western world, especially in the rainy weather of northern Europe. At first it was considered only an accessory suitable for women. Then the Persian traveler and writer, Jonas Hanway (1712-86), carried and used an umbrella publicly in England for thirty years, he popularized umbrella use among men. English gentleman often referred to their umbrellas as a "Hanway."
