If We Had Six Fingers…

Then we would be using base twelve instead of base ten and it would be the sixth, twelfth and thirty sixth anniversary of things we would be commemorating instead of the fifth, tenth and twenty fifth so the whole exercise is completely arbitrary and doesn’t really interest me.  It’s not like anything suddenly changes from the day before to the day after that special fifth trip around the sun since some event occurred.  It’s no different than if it was the fourth trip or the sixth trip.

I know politicians and the media love these multiple-of-five anniversaries because it gives them something to talk about even when there’s nothing new to talk about but I find it all very boring.  So if you came here looking for gooey sentimentalism and reflection over something just because it’s been five years since it happened I’m afraid I’m going to have to disappoint.

Doesn’t mean that I don’t care about what happened.  Look how much of my life have I spent on reporting about it here.  I just don’t care that it’s been five years.
