Is today International Skeptics Day or isn’t it? Well, it may or may not be because this day sort jumps all around the calendar. It falls on either January 13th, October 13th or the first Friday the 13th of the year. So the first thing we can be skeptical about is whether or not Skeptics Day is the day we are celebrating it on. If you doubt anything might be real or not, no matter what that thing is, you are a skeptic. Now some people are skeptical of skeptics. No doubt this is a day we need to be skeptical of. Or do we?
How to celebrate – Doubt everything. Make someone prove what they say. Make a list of things you are skeptical of.
In a world where most of what we do is wrong it’s nice to have a day where everything we do is right! Of course, I am not sure who it is that decides what we do is right… or for that matter wrong. Naturally there are things we can do we know are wrong – stealing, murder, wearing out-of-fashion clothing, so we should avoid those things so that today we have a chance of doing everything right! So much is about the choices we make. You can have a whole lot of “everything you do it right days” if you make the right choices but the point of today is that even those things you do wrong can be right, so long as you keep it within reason. Someone, somewhere, will be judging you, so make sure you judge yourself before being judged… it will make your day all that much more right!
How to celebrate – Do something right! Don’t judge others unless you want to be judged yourself. Enjoy being right, even when you are wrong.
Finally, a day I don’t have to worry about. I never do anything right! Yes, it would be nice to do something right, actually allow what you have learned to serve some purpose, but it seldom happens.
That old saying, “I thought I was right once, but I was wrong” should not apply to today. It should be a day when everything you do is right, at least with someone, even if it is just yourself. In all reality though, it is very hard to be right with everyone. Someone will find exception to your being right.
About the only thing I can be right about is the fact that I am never right! But that is probably wrong as well. Can you imagine though, an entire day where everything you do is right!?! Yesterday was “Everything You do Is Wrong Day” so it only seems natural that the following day should be “Everything You Do Is Right Day”.
Look at it this way… you got a 50-50 chance. You will either be right, or you will be wrong! Of course, there is being sort of right, where you get half of what you are doing right while the other half is wrong.
Well, you got a chance. Just remember to bring your umbrella with you cause more likely than not, it’s gonna rain.
How to celebrate – Do only things you know are right. Ask the others around you what is right (atleast you stand a chance to make them happy). Only make right hand turns.
