NATIONAL NUDE DAY

July 14th is National Nude Day! WHAT???? Yes, it’s true!!!

National Nude Day is a way to keep cool on a hot, sticky summer day. Nudist groups around the world celebrate this holiday and take it quite seriously!  Nudist’s are not perverts…even though their desire to go “au natural” might be offensive to the conservative population!  Nudist’s are individuals who believe the human body is most beautiful in their natural state. Whether or not you agree with them, nudist’s encourage people to strut their stuff.

HISTORY

The founder of National Nude Day is unknown, however, the holiday has origins in New Zealand.

NATIONAL TAPE MEASURE DAY

July 14th is National Tape Measure Day.   A tape measure is something made out of cloth, plastic, fiber glass or metal and has markings on it for linear measurements.  Most everyone knows what a tape measure does and how to use one, but when you go to measure the dimensions of your living room, the width of your new furniture or how far apart your pictures are hanging, do you ever stop and think about the history of it?

The first recorded use of the tape measure goes back to the Romans, utilizing marked strips of leather.  Prior to this, the tool used to measure a distance was something similar to a long rope or chain with marks put on to represent varying distances.  They were big and bulky and not likely to fit inside your pocket or a toolbox that you could take with you. The cost of them back then was around $17 in the United States.  This would be equivalent to about $300 today.

The tape measure that we know and use now comes in a wide array of sizes, colors and materials.  You can find some smaller than the palm of your hand or bigger in lengths of 300+ feet.  They are used for anything from DIY projects at home to professional building, construction, etc., and at a much cheaper price, are a staple in almost every household!

There are a few different claims on who exactly patented the very first tape measure, but they conclusively show it came around in the early 1800′s.
