Wikipedia Meme

Since I don't really feel like making a larger blog post, you'll have to be content with this. Seen in too many places to list.

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

My birthdate is May 3.
