Happy birthday to me…

March 13, 2008

Happy birthday to me, or… triskaidekaphobia extreme. Whatever you like best. :lol:

I was born today, nineteen years ago, at 3:13 AM GMT +1 (or at least that was what I was told). The number thirteen is a number proclaiming to be causing bad luck. Hmm if that’s really true, I guess I’d be screwed… like nothing.

I think for me, it’s rather my lucky number, even though, my birthday is and has always been a completely ordinary day.

Some history about today:
Lone gunman Thomas Hamilton shoots dead 16 children and their teacher at Dunblane Primary School in Scotland before turning the gun on himself.
South Moluccan gunmen seize 70 hostages in a Dutch Government building.
Opening of Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris.
Voluntary driving tests are introduced into Britain – becoming compulsory in June.
Astronomer Clyde Tombaugh announces the discovery of the planet Pluto.
The lance ceases to be an official weapon in the British Army.
In South Africa, British commander Lord Roberts captures the capital of the Orange Free State, Bloemfontein, from the Boers.
First professional striptease at Divan Fayonau Music Hall in Paris.

Czar Alexander II, the ruler of Russia since 1855, is killed in the streets of St. Petersburg by a bomb thrown by a member of the revolutionary People’s Will group.


Formation of Scottish Football Association.

Astronomer Willaim Herschel discovers the planet Uranus.

So we got people assassinated, planets discovered, and… strange things happening on this day… in history. :?

Hmm… who else’s got birthday today? Anyone famous?

Emile Hirsch (actor in ‘the Girl next door [2004]’ and ‘Into the Wild’), Rachel Bella (actress in ‘the Ring’ and ‘A little Princess’), Will Clark (first baseman for 15 seasons and 1984 Olympics), Adam Clayton (bass player of U2), Dana Delany (portrayed army nurse in ‘China Beach’), William H. Macy (versatile actor in ‘Fargo’ and ‘Pleasantville’), Neil Sedaka (pop singer), William Casey (CIA), L. Ron Hubbard (founder of Scientology), Percival Lowell (astronomer, studied canals of Mars)

Humm :? Not that bad a day, it seems. :)
