October 13, 2020 – National Train Your Brain Day | Navy Birthday
How Do You Get Your Brain In Shape?
Welcome to October 13, 2020 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate getting pumped and the birthday of a fighting spirit!
Today’s celebration is about pumping you up! No, I’m not talking about your muscles girly man, I’m talking about that under used super organ between your ears. It’s estimated that we only use a small fraction of the true potential of our brains and if you need more motivation think about this. Everything you see in the world around you was created in someone’s head. That means the 3 pounds of gray matter you now own was responsible for taking us out of the stone age into the age of computers and rockets. So how much heavy lifting are you doing these days? On National Train Your Brain Day get cracking! Even if it’s only lifting a pencil to your favorite puzzle.
On October 13th, 1775, the Second Continental Congress formally established what became the United States Navy. The most famous of the American captains from that era, or any era, was John Paul Jones. In 1779, he engaged the 44-gun Royal Navy frigate Serapis. His ship was burning and sinking, but Jones refused to surrender to the British and uttered one of the most famous quotes ever: “I have not yet begun to fight.” And, it turns out, he hadn’t. Three hours after he made this declaration, the British ship surrendered to him and Jones took command. Today is the Navy’s Birthday and we celebrate the men and women who carry on Captain Jones’s fighting spirit to this day.
