I got tagged by Peter. I’ve seen this one around and it looks interesting. The only sad thing is that I didn’t recognize the people or events surrounding my birthday! I guess that’s the point, though. To learn something new…
1. Go to Wikipedia and type in your Birthday Month and day only.
2. List 3 Events that occurred that day:
1893 – The treaty of the Durand Line was signed between present day Pakistan and Afghanistan and which has gained international recognition as an international border between the two sister-nations. (very interesting in light of current events)
1970 – The Oregon Highway Division attempts to destroy a rotting beached Sperm whale with explosives, leading to the now -infamous exploding whale incident
1980 – The NASA space probe Voyager I makes its closest approach to Saturn and takes first images of its rings.
3. List 2 important Birth days.
1815 – Elizabeth Cady Stanton, American women’s rights activist (d. 1902)
1934 – Charles Manson, American cult leader and mass murderer (eeek!)
1945 – Neil Young, Canadian singer, songwriter, and musician
If anyone else is interested in this one, give it a go. I’d be interested in reading about what happened on your birthday. 🙂
