Even if today's date needed some other number besides 1 to be written (although, more precisely, it's 11/11/2011 — not as much fun), it would still be a special day to many people. The Immortals, starring a lot of beautiful men and Mickey Rourke, hits theaters today. Fed-Ex workers are delivering a new shipment of iPhones #geekchristmas. It's also Veteran's Day — a sober day of remembrance that ought not to be overshadowed by something as arbitrary as six one's propped up next to each other at the top of our checks homework assignments electronic devices.
