Why? Because today is cosmonaut day. I was an astronaut for halloween, so I do have an appropriate costume. If you notice, Google is all spaced out, and I think that might have to do with cosmonaut day.
Today is cosmonaut day -- Forth six years ago, Yuri Gagarin went on Vostok 1 into Earth's orbit, and was the first man into space.
Maybe someday I'll have an extra 20 million dollars lying around so I can go to space as well.
