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