A pretty good representation, I must say. I only had to delete a few of them that made absolutely no sense whatsoever.

Here's mine )

Go to Wikipedia. Type in your birth date (but not year). List three events that happened on your birthday. List two important birthdays and one interesting death. Post this in your journal.

On August 9th:

Four Events (instead of three)
1945 - World War II: An atomic bomb is dropped on the city of Nagasaki, Japan killing an estimated 70,000-90,000.

1969 - Members of a cult led by Charles Manson murder five people.

1974 - Richard Nixon becomes the first President of the United States to resign from office. His Vice President, Gerald Ford, becomes president.

1987 - 9 people are shot dead and 17 more injured as 19-year old Julian Knight opens fire at random in the Hoddle Street Massacre in Clifton Hill


Two Births
1968 - Gillian Anderson, American actress
1968 - Eric Bana, Australian actor

One Death
1995 - Jerry Garcia, American guitarist (Grateful Dead) (b. 1942)

All in all, August 9th has not generally been a happy day in history. It's creeped me out a bit.
