Gakked from dancinghorse and nwhyte, among others. I think I've done this before, so I tried to pick ones I didn't know about. :)

Go to Wikipedia (http://www.wikipedia.org/). Type in your birth date (but not year). List three events that happened on your birthday. List two important birthdays and one interesting death. Post this in your journal.

1495 - Friar John Cor records the first known batch of scotch whisky.
1533 - Henry VIII of England's new wife, Anne Boleyn, is crowned as queen.
1909 - The Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition world's fair opens in Seattle, Washington, United States.

1563 - Robert Cecil, 1st Earl of Salisbury, English statesman and spymaster (d. 1612)
1801 - Brigham Young, Mormon church leader and American western settler (d. 1877)

1968 - Helen Keller, American humanitarian (b. 1880)

Oh my god. Your coolness just went up in my eyes - you share a birthday with Cecil? That's *magnificent*.

I am that much more cool, I agree, due to a totally random coincidence.

I also admit I chose that one in part because I knew it would strike your fancy. :)
