… a day we can celebrate something really impressing:

1941: the launch of SS Patrick Henry, the first of the so called liberty ships (a class of cargo ships) built by the US during WW2. In total 2571 of these were built by 18 us. shipyards between 1941 and 1945, "easily the largest number of ships produced to a single design" (Wikipedia). Quite a feat!!

1998: the launch of google. Also quite a feat.

pibbur who observes that "GNU" is a recursive acronyme for "GNU's Not Unix", and is worried because there are 4 times as many googles for "pibbur" and "republican" than for "pibbur" and "democrat"
