All is Ours Day

When : Always April 8th

All is Ours Day is is bound to be a spectacular day for...... us.

Think of the concept. Imagine the possibilities. The creator of this day was absolutely brilliant. What a great day this will be.

The creator of this day was absolutely brilliant. Let's dissect the meaning and intent of this great day. We will do so by examining the title of this day, word for word. It begins with the word "all". For such a little word, it's all-inclusive. From a possessive standpoint, therefore, we are talking about anything and everything we want.. The verb "is" is sort, sweet and definite. It leaves no room for doubt or question.

Finally, the creator chose the word "our" rather than the word "mine" This is a vital decision allowing us to completely enjoy today. The greatest events, and the best things in life, are those that are shared. The only thing the creator left out is the definition of who "Ours" represents. That is left up to you.

Origin of "All is Ours Day":
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.

  "All your base are belong to us"
An Engrish (broken English) phrase that became an Internet phenomenon or meme. The text comes from the opening cutscene of the 1991 European Sega Mega Drive version of the video game Zero Wing[1] by Toaplan, which was poorly translated from the original Japanese version. (from wikipedia)

Some interesting items in the history page. I remember when President Nixon froze wages in 1972, but didn't know that President Roosevelt had done it previously in 1943.

Cobol was one of the first programming languages I had to learn while studying computer science.
