Gr8 D8

If I were to write an article with the title "Gr8 D8" ten years ago, many people would scratch their heads in utter bewilderment. Thanks to the advent and the widespread of cellphones today, I can happily cut my title shorter by, erm, 4 letters.

The point is, today is the eighth day of the eighth month of the year 08. Many people celebrate this great date by many actions otherwise seem mundane on other days.

For example, organisations hold mass weddings today. The number of couples participating may be restricted such that the number matches the date, such as 8, 88, 888, 8888, and so on.

Besides the parents-to-bes, I'm sure many pregnant mums will persuade their doctors to induce births today. Well, having an easy-to-remember birthday is an added advantage, I must admit.

China even decided to hold its Olympics opening ceremony today, at the eighth minute of the eighth hour. The thing is it has to be at night, which isn't logical as 8 at night is the 20th hour of the day.

Some people even squeezed their brain juices dry, creating blog entries containing a significant amount of 8s! Tsk tsk tsk...

I personally think people should not w8 to marry their m8s and seal their f8s just to have this gr8 d8 as their anniversaries. Organisations take this chance to earn extra from the marrying couples. Yeah, it's like the d8 itself is a b8, stealing pl8s of free dinner. Nor should people r8 their days with d8s of str8 numbers. It's just not fair for the other days.

Well, some of you may h8 me and get ir8 for not being str8 at cre8ing this post. Ah well, happy gr8 d8 day to all of you! See ya l8r!
