Feast Day of the Golden Mouth.

Dostoyevsky, we hardly know thee: "A Domino's franchise owner in Russia offered customers 100 years of free pizza (max of 100 pies per year) if they got the Domino's logo tattooed on their bodies 'in a prominent place.' Turns out, demand was so overwhelming it had to cap the number of winners at 350."

Even I'm a little surprised that it's this high: "More than 50 percent of adolescent females transitioning to the opposite gender tried committing suicide, according to a Tuesday study that asked a number of respondents with various gender identities about suicide attempts." Link. An educator once told me that it has nothing to do with mental illness. It's because they're rejected by society. Ah, yes. That's why the pre-Constantine Christians committed suicide in such high numbers and blacks killed themselves in record numbers under Jim Crow. And don't even get me started on that famous movie, Suicide of the Nerds.
