Some of you may recall my post back in September 2007 about NERD HOLIDAYS.
Well today, 12 February 2008, is DARWIN DAY! Today we celebrate the 199th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin on 12 February 1809.
Wikipedia sez, "The day is also an opportunity to highlight Darwin's contribution to science and to promote science in general."

In the spirit of DARWIN DAY, I give you a link to an awesome article pointed out to be by lillibet (as a response to my previous rant on energy) here: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/96822.php
It's about a knee brace that collects the energy of a person while s/he is walking. Pretty cool, eh?
(I still need nerd holidays for January, July, and August. Otherwise, I have one for every month of the year, I think. Unfortunately, it looks like Wikipedia punted its Nerd Holiday webpage.)
