Wikipedia Meme

Thanks to Ms.Mac for this meme idea. The only change I’ve made, with the exception of the Holiday, is to only use things that happened during my lifetime.

How to do it:

Go to Wikipedia
In the search box, type your birth month and day but not the year.
List three events that happened on your birthday
List two important birthdays and one death
One holiday or observance (if any)

Three Events:

1970 – In Basse-Terre, Guadeloupe, 1.5 inches (38.1mm) of rain fall in a minute, the heaviest rainfall ever on record.

1977 – ‘Vrillon’, representative of the ‘Ashtar Galactic Command’, takes over Britain’s Southern Television for five minutes at 5:12 PM.

1983 – Brinks Mat robbery: In London, 6,800 gold bars worth nearly £26 million are taken from the Brinks Mat vault at Heathrow Airport

Two Birthdays

1970 – Alex Taylor, Latin porn star

1981 – Natasha Bedingfield, British singer

….and One Death

1996 – Michael Bentine, British comedian (b. 1922)

One Holiday or Observance

Mongolia – Independence day (from China in July 11, 1921)

The main thing I’ve learned from putting this list together is that my birthday is one of the rubbish nothing happens days of the year. Every year.
