HAPPY INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY: See How People Are Celebrating

WONDERING WHAT'S WITH ALL THE YELLING ONLINE?

Today is International Caps Lock Day, a 10-year-old holiday created by Derek Arnold.

"CAPS LOCK DAY IS A CELEBRATION OF LIFE AND FOREVER SCREAMING TEXT FOR ALL ETERNITY AND LOVE," explains the SELF PROCLAIMED OFFICIAL HOME PAGE OF CAPS LOCK DAY.

According to The Next Web, Arnold made this case for the uppercase holiday:

International Caps Lock Day is in fact a testament to the small mindedness of certain Western individuals: the majority of the world's population writes in scripts which have no concept of letter casing. Therefore it is advised to laugh at anyone who invokes this day as an excuse to dismiss local typographical conventions: they are simply making an ass out of themselves.
