Meme

From Niora.

Go to Wikipedia and look up your birth day (excluding the year). List three events, two births and one death in your journal, including the year.

So: April 6th.

Events:
1320 - The Scots reaffirm their independence by signing the Declaration of Arbroath.
1973 - Launch of Pioneer 11 spacecraft.
1994 - The Rwandan Genocide begins when the aircraft carrying Rwandan president Juvénal Habyarimana and Burundian president Cyprien Ntaryamira is shot down by extremists.

The choice for evenst was definitely the hardest. Several interesting events were left out.

Births:
1483 - Raphael, Italian painter and architect (d. 1520)
1671 - Jean-Baptiste Rousseau, French poet (d. 1741)

For me, those were easy choices.

Deaths:
1992 - Isaac Asimov, Russian-born author (b. 1920)

And as an extra trivia Raphael died on his (and thus my) birthday.

Um, is it just me or are these years mixed up somehow? :-)

Thanks for noting the problem. A missing " caused it. It should now be fixed.
