July 24th is National Tequila Day

In comparison, Donut Day looks kind of lame.

Unfortunately I couldn't find you guys any free tequila offers, but it's still a great excuse to get your drunk on. When exactly July 24th became a national holiday of Tequila and the origins of the holiday remain unclear. But hey, National Tequila Day!

Interestingly, babies and bruises of unidentifiable origin aren't Tequila's only side effects. From Fast Company:

Last year a group of scientists found that by vaporizing tequila and then heating it to nearly 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit, they could create diamonds. The balance of ethanol and water in tequila is so ideal that even an inexpensive bottle of gold tequila can produce 100-400 nanometer diamond sheets free of imperfections.
