The Morning Brew: A day to celebrate the joy of failure
It's the second Friday in October, or as it's known in Norman and Austin, the calm before the storm.
It's international Failure day
Today is Friday the 13th which is a thing in and unto itself. But since 2010 this day each year is marked as the "Day for Failure".
It's also national Yorkshire Pudding Day, which is a bizarre pastry that seems to serve no real purpose that is consumed in England in mass quantities.
But back to failure. National and international days have become a thing in recent decades. There are days for hot dogs and cupcakes, even certain breeds of dogs. But failure is an interesting and possibly beneficial thing to honor, or at least recognize.
Here are 10 ways to celebrate according to dayforfailure.com:
- Fail. How? Just fail. You'll find your own personal way to do it.
- Tweet your failure with hashtag #dayforfailure or read a bunch of fails from other human beings. We human beings are used to failing.
- Buy great ingredients, read recipe, prepare everything and burn your food. Serve when you (and the food) are cooled down.
- Do a bankruptcy. Money isn't everything, they say. Right?
- Ask that boy/girl/anyone out.
- Go to YouTube and search "fail". Remember, no one on the videos planned failing. It's just something that usually occures after trying. Still, why so many videos?
- Learn from your failure.
