Default Our Birthdates

Hey all,

So, I was just screwing around in the endless pit of information that is Wikipedia. I found out that if you type in a day (for example, January 2nd), it'll show you all of events in history, births, and death that happened on that date. You can specify by year if you want but that makes for an awfully short list, so I stuck with day and month.

Anyway, what happened on your birthdate?

[hr]

I share my birthday, January 2nd, with someone VERY ironic: Isaac Asimov! ;D

October 29th

1390 - First trial for witchcraft in Paris

1886 - The first ticker-tape parade takes place in New York City when office workers spontaneously throw ticker tape into the streets as the Statue of Liberty is dedicated.

1929 - The New York Stock Exchange crashes in what will be called the Crash of '29 or "Black Tuesday", ending the Great Bull Market of the 1920s and beginning the Great Depression.

2004 - The Arabic news network Al Jazeera broadcasts an excerpt from a video of Osama bin Laden in which the terrorist leader first admits direct responsibility for the September 11, 2001 attacks and references the 2004 U.S. presidential election.

2005 - 29 October 2005 Delhi bombings kill more than 60.

I also noticed a lot of massacres on Oct. 29th.... Tells you something about me doesn't it? :P

There are about 2 things that really have to be noted about my birthday (Nov 27)

Quote:
Births

1940 - Bruce Lee, American actor and martial artist

1942 - Jimi Hendrix, American guitarist
The rest just seems boring and mediocre in comparison.
