Every element heavier than nickel—which is 75% of them—has its first three electron shells completely filled with electrons. Those first three shells hold 2, 8, and 18 electrons, respectively. So the electron shell notation for all of those elements begins 2-8-18....And today's date is 2-8-18! And out of all the generations who have ever lived, we are the ones alive to see it! I know, amazing, right?

Please, though, try to make sure your excitement of the date and its significance doesn't distract you while driving or operating heavy machinery today. And I'll try to do the same.

Yeah, good point. I first posted this to my Facebook feed, which has a much less international audience.

I have to pity the rest of the world with their backwards date formats. You don't get to celebrate Pi Day.

That's the weirdest way to spell cannoli I have ever seen.

My favorite 18xx game for six players is two games of 1846 with three players each.
