This is cool!

A year to the day after I was born, January 21 1976, the Concorde was launched by Italy and France, and two years after, in 1977 abortion was legalised in Italy. In 1793 King Louis the 16th of France is found guilty of treason and beheaded during the Revolution.

What other interesting things happened the day you were born??

Here's the link that will tell you!

August 4th. Does anything EVER happen on August 4th? Everyone's too busy sleeping or being really hot or vacationing. It's in that 2 weeks of summer that basically defines that "dog days" and no one ever does anything!

Prince's Purple Rain album went to #1 exactly a year before I was born.
