He will do - he can't get his head around that voting 2-5 on 95% of the submissions on this site is wrong.
So yeah, fuck overhyped celebrations that should be of no matter in this modern age.
If you're talking celebrations like Chelsea coming back with the European Championship crown, then yes, they are outdated and shite. I wouldn't go to a massive street party if Aston Villa won the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup and League cup all in the same year (we live in hope, though)
Let me explain the Jubilee using statistics:
Queen Elizabeth II has been on the throne for 60 years, 119 Days (22,034 days in total). Only Queen Victoria is ahead of her, with 63 years, 216 days (23,226 days). We ought to celebrate the fact that she has lived so long. In a time when opinionated, yet uneducated dimwits have called for the abolition of the monarchy, she has stood tall and still managed to guide the Royal Family through one hell of a lot. Her uncle nearly caused the disillusion of the monarchy in 1936 and both George VI and Elizabeth II have worked tirelessly to restore public faith in such a storied institution.
I understand that you're peeved about losing a couple of days work through this, but that's life, I'm afraid. It really is nothing personal.
12 more years and Queen Elizabeth II will become the longest reigning monarch in European History, surpassing Louis XIV of France. I want her to beat the French, by god!
Also, we do pomp and ceremony better than anyone else, so why not enjoy it? If you don't, I don't mind, but please don't lambast your own country for doing what she does best.

Thanks for the update, Bahamut. A shame that I didn't get as many points as normal, but I've now moved within the 10k fence of courtday. Time to see if I can up the game and make more ground up on him.
