Countdown to Towel Day 2011
« on: February 15, 2011, 01:04:25 AM »
It's Valentine's Day and that means it's 100 days until Towel Day (unless it is a leap year, which it is not since we only take a leap when it is time to elect a US President).  For this year's countdown I thought we could do an easy exercise - Uses for a Towel - First post of the day gets to declare how many days until Towel Day, but no limit on daily entries.  If you get stuck, you can pilfer something from the Hitchhiker books or from our short list of uses elsewhere on this site...

100 Days Until Towel Day!!!

Towel use: to send messages in Semaphore (probably easier with 2 towels)
"That really is truly amazing. That is so amazingly amazing I think I'd like to steal it." - Zaphod Beeblebrox
