February 29th

Human beings work in abstractions, and time is one of them. For these abstractions to work, you need other people to share them, and that's what February 29th, a leap day, is all about. In a sense, it's kind of comforting that even though there are genocides, torture, heinous dictators, hatred, and all sorts of evil being strewn around the planet, at least we can all agree on what day it is.

Sort of.
