I'll post about the wonderfulness of mr_t00by's class production of The Scottish Play tomorrow. I don't feel like gushing because it's late and because MY ROOM IS LEAKING.
Instead, a meme. I did this last year, but there are more events listed, so I'll try to do different stuff this time.
Type your birthdate (no year) into Wikipedia. Post 3 events, 2 birthdays, and 1 death that happened on that date.
1817 - First Great Lakes steamer, the Frontenac, is launched. (that one's for peacey and her t00by love for the Lake Boats)
1989 - The Inuvialuit Final Agreement is signed in Canada to give the Inuit of western Canada the first comprehensive land claim agreement north of the 60th parallel. (that one's for Fraser. :) Wikipedia also linked "Canada" and "Western Canada" here, but I figured you could figure those out without links. *g*)
1989 - The Unknown Rebel halts the progress of a column of advancing tanks for over half an hour after the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989.
