1988 - I was born. Of course that's important!


OK, for serious:

1911 - The beginning of the Wuchang Uprising, which led to the Xinhai Revolution, resulting in the overthrow of the Qing Dynasty and the imperial monarchy in China and the establishment of the Republic of China.

1945 - Founding of the Workers' Party of Korea.

Also, infamous movie director Ed Wood (most well known for Plan 9 from Outer Space) was born today, in 1924.

Yes, sort of. In analytical topics it's somehow more questionable but this topic is pure boring chronology... wiki can't do a lot of damage here.

Even the Wikipedia entry for October 13 feels really short. Apparently Nero ascended to the Roman throne, and the Red Army took Riga, Latvia. Yep...

A Romulan became Emperor of Rome? That's almost appropriate.

1933- Nazi Germany gives us Albert Einstien. In exchange we give them another seven years to clean up their act before we come over there.
1945- Peron takes over Argentina
1957- Albert Camus actually accepts his Nobel Prize. Take that, Sartre.
2005- The Colbert Report is born, leading to 5 years of Bill O'reilly fans asking "he's not joking, is he?"

1929 - The "Black Thursday" Wall Street Crash, to be followed by "Black Monday" and the infamous "Black Tuesday" the next week. Man, I want to see a repeat of this so badly, and followed by a smashing of the entire rotting system. Frag what my S-D and left-liberal friends say.
1945 - Charter of the United Nations enters into force after its ratification by the members of the Security Council, thereby establishing a (sort of) new order in the international stage, while simultaneously giving ammunition to lunatic New World Order conspiracy theorists.

November 2nd

It's E-day and Big Dave is scared. I challenge anyone to get that reference.

1983- Martin Luther King day is established by...Reagan.
2006- Rev. Ted Haggard's sex scandal forces him to resign from his position. What that postition was, I couldn't tell you.

Also the birthday of two of our presidents: James K. Polk and Warren G. Harding as well as Marie Antoinette and Nelly. I don't think it's a coincidence.
