Planning 2013

As part of its Global Agenda 2013 package, the International Herald Tribune magazine highlights a couple dozen calendar standouts in the year to come, such as the Sapporo Snow Festival, a British cheese-rolling event, and National Hugging Day.

You know what's the worst? People who stand in college quads or on the sides of roads offering "free hugs". All hugs are free, you cretin, now stop invading my personal space.


@Decca Well actually, perhaps not all hugs are free.

@Decca I don't know, I think it's nice, as long as they're not forcing anyone to hug them. Sometimes people just really need a hug.


@fondue with cheddar

My friends and I did a free hugs thing at the local corn maze when I was in high school, and it's safe to say we were pretty obnoxious (no forcing, just shouting), which is probably why they asked us to leave. Oh, teens.

@frigwiggin Haha. Yeah, I think if teenagers were shouting at me to hug them I'd probably say no. And besides, it's probably advisable a) for minors not to give strangers hugs, and b) for adults not to give strange minors hugs.


This is amazing.@y


Apparently people get seriously injured at that cheese-rolling thing. I've wanted to do it ever since I heard about it.
