It's Not Stealing....It's Borrowing Indefinitely

When you can't think of a post of your own, it's time to borrow from the Blog O'Sphere.

From Fence comes a fun Wikipedia game. (And who among us doesn't love Wikipedia?) The rules are simple.

Enter your birthday into Wikipedia, leaving off the year. In your blog, list 3 fun facts, 2 fellow birthday sharers, and 1 person for whom your birthday is his or her death day.

27 July


Fun Facts
  • 1866 - The Atlantic Cable is successfully completed, allowing transatlantic telegraph communication for the first time.

  • 1940 - Bugs Bunny makes his official debut in the animated cartoon A Wild Hare.

  • 1974 - Watergate Scandal: The House of Representatives Judiciary Committee votes 27 to 11 to recommend the first article of impeachment against President Richard Nixon: obstruction of justice.

  • Ed. Note: It was hard to find 3 fun facts. My birthday appears to be a day of military defeats/victories, massacres, air tragedies, bombings, and canyoning distasters.

    Birthdays
  • 1960 - Jay Maynard, Internet celebrity (Tron Guy)

  • 2969 1969 - Triple H, Professional Wrestler

  • Ed. Note: Clearly, a 27 July birthday primes you for greatness.

    Death Day
  • Aleksandr Danilovich Aleksandrov, Russian mathematician, physicist, philosopher, and mountaineer (b. 1912)

  • Ed. Note: I hope when I die, I'm remembered for 4 things. I just hope they're not something like sitting around on the couch, watching television, bitching and moaning.

    Triple H was born in 2969?

    Yep. It's a little known fact - Triple H is from the future, just like the Terminator.

    I'd believe that Triple H (why don't we write his name HHH) is from the future. Anyone involved in wrestling clearly knows something we don't.

    Triple H is a nice guy.The father of one of my son's closest friends is his manager.

    How is that for an almost fun fact.
