Happy Saturday everyone! It seems like its going to be a nice day and I have to work at 2pm. Booo. Oh well, better than being a zombie on the midnight shift. Anyways....I just wanted to post today because the world has avoided another predication of the End of the World. *sighs* Why bother announcing the date that the world will end because in the end you will always end up either the bad guy or the idiot. Why do I say that? If you are right everyone dies and you are the bad guy that jinked us. If you are wrong you are going to look like an idiot/fool. No more predications! I beg of you (and you know who I'm taking to)!
ANYWAYS, now I'll share some events that happened on today's date, because since the world survived again, it's time to appreciate a little world history:
~Peyton Randolph dies, 1775, American Revolution
~President Kennedy announces blockade of Cuba during Missile Crisis, 1962, Cold War
~A coal mine in New Mexico explodes, 1913
~The first parachutist uses the parachut, 1797
~Today is Jeff Goldblum's birthday! He was born in 1952
~Franz Liszt is born in 1811 (he's a pianist and composer)
~President Thieu turns down peace proposal, 1972
~Germans capture Langemarck during the First Battle of Ypres during WWI in 1914
~Allies in WWII confer secretly about Operation Torch, 1942
Well, I hoped you liked today's little history reminder. Have a great weekend you guys!
