310g Day  

Evidently today is 310g Day, except perhaps in the United States, where it may be 11oz. Day instead.

Blog Day 2007

The purpose of this day is presumably to raise awareness of things that have a mass of 310 grams, such as:

  1. a lightweight cross-country bicycle tire
  2. a Timneh African grey parrot
  3. Studying Physics, by David Sands
  4. a tin of microwaveable sticky toffee sponge pudding
  5. Baker, the first squirrel monkey to survive space flight
  6. a silver menorah
  7. a human heart

(re "Blog Day 2007")
Find five new and interesting blogs and post about them? Gee. I kind of thought that was what the LJ friends list was for. I find about one per month, and if actively looking, it can take me most of a day to find one that is just somewhat interesting. To "find" five in one day I would have to save up for a few months.

Funny! I was thinking how whimsical you Torontonians were with your holidays.

Will I begin to write 310g instead of blog now? Too soon to tell. Or, is it also bouncing off 3108? Wow, the possibilities weird.

I also read it as "3108 Day," when we should all take the time to reflect on the amendment of the Employee Retirement Income Act of 1974 and the Bissell Easy Vac Powerbrush. But maybe that's only in the US.

Or it could be 3108 Day, which would be 200 Day in decimal.

i read that as "200 Day in denial" at first and was rather confused.

"I'm not 200 Day. Really, I'm not! I'm 3108 Day, which is totally different! Why doesn't anyone believe me?"

Har! Significant ponderings, indeed.

You're weird.

I'm weird? What about the people who invented 310g Day?

what's with the Danish?!
Why are half the button labels in Danish? Are you a Dane or something?
