Birthday Meme

While wasting some time on the Internet, I found this here and here, It kind of excited me.

Go to Wikipedia. In the Search box, type your birth month and day (but not year). List three events that happened on your birthday. List two important birthdays and one interesting death. Post this in your journal.

Three events:
1492 - Christopher Columbus lands in Cuba.
1868 - Thomas Edison applied for his first patent, the electric vote recorder.
1981 - The heavy metal band Metallica is founded in San Francisco. (I used to listen to this band, when I enjoyed Heavy Metal, I still listen to some of there songs)

Two birthdays:
1955 - Bill Gates, American software pioneer. (It doesn't mean anything, I'm still an open source guy).
1967 - Julia Roberts, American actress. (Don't you just love her)

One death:
1973 - Taha Hussein, Egyptian writer (b. 1889)
