They don't want you to vote.  If they did, we wouldn't vote on a Tuesday.  In November.  You ever throw a party on a Tuesday?  No.  Because nobody would come.

Tuesday is a day of the week occurring after Monday and before Wednesday.  According to some commonly used calendars (esp. in the U.S.A.), it is the third day of the week.  According to international standard ISO 8601, however, it is the second day of the week.  The English name is derived from Old English Tiwesdæg and Middle English Tewesday, meaning "Tīw's Day", the day of Tiw or Týr, the god of single combat, victory, and heroic glory in Norse mythology.  Tiw was equated with Mars in the interpretatio germanica, and the name of the day is a translation of Latin dies Martis.

Quotes from television[edit]

  • Sam Winchester:  My point is I've lived through every possible Tuesday.  I've watched you die every possible way.  I have ripped apart the Mystery Spot, burnt it down, tried everything I know to save your life and I can't.  No matter what I do, you die.  And then I wake up.  And then it's Tuesday again.
