hapyp bierthday

Well it was my bday on thursday making me a whopping quarter of a century old. I wasn't really in a celebratory mood but my family took me out to eat anyways. I don't like having birthday parties for myself because I hate being the center of attention. 

Anyways heres a couple of interesting things that have happened in the past on my birthday September 18.

In 1573 - Spain attacked Alkmaar which was a city in the netherlands.  (Huh jeez thats nice)

In 1873 - The Panic of 1873 begins. (How about that)

In 1885 - Riots break out in Montreal to protest against compulsory smallpox vaccination. (oh boy)

In 1939 - William Joyce's first Nazi propaganda broadcast. (this just keeps getting better and better)

In 1970 - Jimi Hendrix dies in London (nooo not jimi !)

In 1982 - Christian militia begin killing six-hundred Palestinians in Lebanon. (you gotta be kidding me)

In 2001 - First mailing of anthrax letters from TrentonNew Jersey in the 2001 anthrax attacks. (nothing like some anthrax on a birthday to spice things up)


Well that was just wonderful. I feel so much more better now.

Thats just like you to look on the bright sunny side of things, you being born on that day makes up for all the crap that happened, loooooool.

And technically you weren't born when most of those things happened so it wasn't ur birthday, I know, I know I'm good.

A couple cheerful or at least not as bad as the ones you mentioned that happened on the 18th of September:

-September 18, 1769 John Harris builds 1st spinet piano (U.S.)
// Isn't that splendid?

-September 18, 1928 Juan de la Cierva flies 1st helicopter above Channel

Yep, that's all I can find :P

Right because using "anonymous" to comment on the first thing that tickles your fancy is hardly childish. Way to go holmes!
