Wikipedia meme

1. Go to www.wikipedia.org

2. In the search thingy, type in the month and date of your birth, minus the year. Hit enter.

3. Find 3 births, 2 deaths, one "just for kicks" event, and a "startling" event that happened on that day and month, in whatever year.

Like thus:

My birthdate - July 1st.

3 Events:

251 – The battle of Abrittus is won by Goths against Romans. Roman Emperors Decius and Herennius Etruscus are killed.

1782 - American privateers attack Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.

1858 - The joint reading of Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace's papers on evolution to the Linnean Society.

2 births:

1906 - Estée Lauder, American cosmetics entrepreneur (d. 2004)

1952 - Dan Aykroyd, Canadian actor

Deaths:

1991 - Michael Landon, American actor, director, and producer (b. 1936)

For kicks:

Canada Day (formerly Dominion Day) - national holiday of Canada

Startling:

1933 - Canadian Parliament suspends all Chinese immigration.

I found a LOT of things dealing with Canada for my birthday. Aside from history things, a lot of Canadaian actors/actresses share my birthday.
