Your special day...
« on: April 21, 2011, 12:10:15 AM »
Dumb little game that came to me when reading the General Chit-Chat Thread
Go on Wikipedia and search your birthday (just the day and the month) and post the most interesting events you can find.

November 30:

1786 – Peter Leopold Joseph of Habsburg-Lorraine, Grand Duke of Tuscany, promulgates a penal reform making his country the first state to abolish the death penalty. Consequently, November 30 is commemorated by 300 cities around the world as Cities for Life Day.
1872 – The first-ever international football match takes place at Hamilton Crescent, Glasgow, between Scotland and England.
1936 – In London, the Crystal Palace is destroyed by fire.
1939 – Winter War: Soviet forces cross the Finnish border in several places and bomb Helsinki and several other Finnish cities, starting the war.
1947 – 1947–1948 Civil War in Mandatory Palestine begins on this day, leading up to the creation of the state of Israel.
1982 – Michael Jackson's Thriller, the best-selling album of all time, is released.
1995 – Official end of Operation Desert Storm.

People I share my birthday with:
1667 – Jonathan Swift, Irish writer and satirist (d. 1745)
1835 – Mark Twain, American writer (d. 1910)
1874 – Sir Winston Churchill, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Nobel laureate (d. 1965)
1915 – Brownie McGhee, American blues musician (d. 1996)             <--- Coincidence?
1955 – Billy Idol (born William Michael Albert Broad), British musician
1978 – Clay Aiken, American singer

I'm just that bored.

I actually know 4 people who have the same birthday as me, and 10-15 more who were born within a week of me. It's strange, way more people seem to be born in summer than in winter, and my birthday seems to be pretty much at the peak time.

Alright let's see what my special day April 15 has in store for me:

Events:

1892 – The General Electric Company is formed - huh, who cares? (do you)
1912 – The British passenger liner, the RMS Titanic, sinks in the North Atlantic at 2:20 a.m., two and a half hours after hitting an iceberg. 1,517 people are killed. (that's an important one, can't forget)
1952 – The maiden flight of the B-52 Stratofortress. One badass long-range, jet-powered with eight turbojet engines strategic bomber. Yeah I am an plane enthusiastic.
1955 – McDonald's restaurant dates its founding to the opening of a franchised restaurant by Ray Kroc, in Des Plaines, Illinois. - That's an important date for many isn't it, afterall its yum, yum, yum.
1983 – Tokyo Disney Resort (and the Tokyo Disneyland park) opens in Tokyo Bay (Japan) - to whoever who enjoys that.
2010 – Volcanic ash from the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull in Iceland leads to the closure of airspace over most of Europe - not a big one but volcanic eruptions interest me.

Births:

1452 – Leonardo da Vinci, Italian Renaissance polymath (d. 1519) - Do I even need to tell you what all he's famous for.
1966 – Samantha Fox, English singer - heard her name somewhere before, but I don't care in short.
1990 – Emma Watson, English actress - Jealous anyone? :D

Deaths:

1641 – Domenico Zampieri, Italian painter (b. 1581) - a loss to art lovers like myself
2004 – Mitsuteru Yokoyama, Japanese manga artist (b. 1934) - never read his works, but must state here as one of anime and manga community.
