Happy Guy Fawkes Day! Remember, Remember…

Today is Guy Fawkes Day in Britain.  It is the 5th of November.  Do you remember? Guy Fawkes led a revolt and a plot to blow up Parliament.  They have a day to remember this.  We think politics are bad in the U.S. but we don’t have a day set aside to remember a guy that tried to blow up Congress.

Some will remember this is tied to the plot of the comic and the movie adaption of V for Vendetta.

“Remember, remember, the fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and plot.
I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.”

Here is a cool video with Nick Knowles exploring the facts of the event.

Stay Geeky My Friends!
