St. Andrew's Day

Our National Day, when we pat ourselves on the backs for the simple reason that we are Scottish.

Being Scottish is something special? According to a writer quoted in Wired Magazine it is.

“When we gaze out on a contemporary world shaped by technology, capitalism and modern democracy, and struggle to find our own place in it, we are in effect viewing the world through the same lens as the Scots did,” writes Herman in his 2001 book, How the Scots Invented the Modern World.
