Another one of those amazing calendar coincidences

Today is Internet Day (the anniversary of the day, in 1969, when the first-ever computer-to-computer link was established on ARPANET, the precursor to the Internet). Although it would have made a great story, it is not true that the first computer-to-computer communication was a picture of a kitten and a silly caption.

If you'd rather wait until Al Gore's Birthday (March 31) to celebrate the birth of the Internet, almost all of the Usual Suspects suggest that today is also National Cat Day.

OK, that could be another Halloween tie-in -- witch's familiars and all that -- but then we noticed that today is also National Hermit Day. Now how appropriate is that?

Without the Internet, how would you find out about all these cool calendar coincidences?
