my birthday is kind of kewl.

Filed under: Entries — arglor @ 8:49 pm

Instructions: Go to Wikipedia, type in your birthday, but not the year, and select three events, births, and deaths that share that day with you.

Events.. does it just have to be three?! I CHOOSE FOUR! One is of a personal note. So much shit happened on my little bitty day.


1939 – New York City’s La Guardia Airport opens. -> This is a nice personal point. I used this airport a lot. I’m glad it opened on my b-day. Used to fly in and out of this place on a regular basis. Long distance relationships. LGA has a soft spot in my heart.

1942 – Manhattan Project: A team led by Enrico Fermi initiate the first self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction. -> Arguably the birth of the most destructive device in the world. Can’t beat that.. And no it wasn’t ME! MWHAHAHAHAHA!!! or was it. .. …

1954 – Red Scare: The United States Senate votes 65 to 22 to condemn Joseph McCarthy for “conduct that tends to bring the Senate into dishonor and disrepute.” -> The United States Senate wakes up after allowing one of the most dishonorable actions in american History. Hey this is a good thing.

2001 – Enron files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. -> Perhaps the end of corporate greed and malicious activities?! One can only hope.

ALL THE BIRTHS SUCK!…………………………………………………………


I must scrub myself now. Cleanse myself of my hated day.


Had some famous deaths on my date.

1814 – Marquis de Sade, French writer (b. 1740)

1859 – John Brown, American abolitionist (hanged) (b. 1800)

And finally, I’m sorry to have to tell you this, but it is true.

It came as a shock to everyone, i know.

On december 2nd 1957, Harrison Ford died.

Yes , yes we all know. He was a great actor. Who could forget his most memorable films and works? He made movies seem more special. We will miss him.
