Go over to Wikipedia and enter your birthdate and then pick 3 events, 2 births and 1 holiday that occurred on the day of your birthday.

Okay--my birthday is November 12, 1966. Oddly enough, I couldn't find anything that happened on my actual date of birth. There were plenty of things that happened on November 12 of other years. I tried to pick relatively upbeat events.

Events:

  • 1847 - Sir James Young Simpson, a British physician, is the first to use chloroform as an anaesthetic.
  • 1981 - The Space Shuttle Columbia becomes the first spacecraft to be launched twice.
  • 1990 - Tim Berners-Lee publishes a formal proposal for the World Wide Web.

Births:

  • 1929 - Princess Grace of Monaco, American Actress, Royalty
  • 1962 - Naomi Wolf, American author and feminist

Death:

  • 1916 - Percival Lowell, American amateur astronomer, founder of Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona (b. 1855)
