Go to Wikipedia and look up your birthday (excluding the year). List three neat facts, two births and one death in your journal, including the year.


Three Facts
655 – Battle of the Winwaed: Penda of Mercia is defeated by Oswiu of Northumbria.

1806 – Pike expedition: Lieutenant Zebulon Pike sees a distant mountain peak while near the Colorado foothills of the Rocky Mountains (it is later named Pikes Peak)
Because hell yes, he saw a distant mountain peak! That's the stuff!

1859 – The first modern revival of the Olympic Games takes place in Athens, Greece.

...Sadly, the English version withhelds this gem:
1953 - In Deutschland wird auf den Zuckerstreuer ein Patent erteilt.


Two Births
1887 – Georgia O'Keeffe, American painter

1993 – Ash Ketchum, Japanese actor/pokemon master
And that's a fact. Apparently.


One Death
1630 – Johannes Kepler, German astronomer and mathematician
*sniff*

The Ash Ketchum fact is the greatest thing ever. Seriously. (Although German Pokewiki makes him slightly older as in being born in 1986...) =D

And gives him a totally different birthday. I'LL IGNORE THAT BECAUSE OTHERWISE MY BIRTHDAY IS WAY TO BORING! X'D

And your icon! ♥

I think I have completely neglected to comment on your posts. I need to change that, if you don't mind xD

And lol, that German fact is cool xD And Ash Ketchum. Being a fact listed there. I kind of still can't believe it.

I just looked up my birthday, and man, is my day bloody. War and murder everywhere. At least Sigmund Freud and George Clooney share it XD

Oh I absolutely don't mind! But don't feel bad, I suck at commenting, too (as... you may have noticed. ;))

Ash is really cool. But I did a little more research and basically every other source say he's got a different birthday, BUT I'M TOTALLY GONNA IGNORE THEM. X'D

I know! Basically everything that ever happened on my birthday was the start or end of some war/siege/whatever. *lol*
...But that's probably the fault of historical narrative. At least I want to believe that. ;)
And I don't even have cool people to share it with. Other than Ash, of course. X'D
