How to get on our 2011 Despair calendar

It's that time of year again when people say things like "It's that time of year again." And though the human race has very nearly survived 2010, we still we don't have hoverboards.

This of course means it's time to update our Despair, Inc. Custom Calendar in preparation for 2011.

Our depressingly demotivational calendar is chock full of important geeky dates, like:

  • September 19: Talk Like A Pirate Day. Landlubbers rejoice everywhere!
  • April 4, 1982: "PacMan" debuts on Atari 2600.
  • April 30, 1993: The World Wide Web is born at CERN. ThinkGeek would have named it the Tim Berners-Lee.

Thankfully, we may have to update this one soon:

We've been publishing our own calendar for nigh 10 years, but of course we're missing important dates and holidays--especially newer ones--and that is where you swoop in to rescue us.

If there's a geeky date, holiday, or special moment in history you think we'd be just plain ignorant to leave out of the calendar, please add to it to our list using the form below. If you have more than one date to share, you'll need to fill the form out each time. Sorry; clean data is happy data!

We'll pick our favorites for our 2011 calendar, and then we'll start this all over again next year, laughing about how we ever lived without hoverboards.

UPDATE 9/20 10:20am ET: We've closed date submission for our 2011 calendar, and we'll definitely do this again next year. Thanks for all your help!

meaningless icon! Malikaie, we'll launch our 2011 calendar closer to the holidays. The one I've linked to for this post was for 2010 and we don't have that one in stock right now.
