carringtons reviews – StumbleUpon

My pal Carring-Tron sez:

I read about this meme via Derryl Murphy’s blog: go to Wikipedia and look up your birthday without the year. Select and list three events, two births, and one death that happened on that day.

May 20
I was originally going to choose
# 1861 – American Civil War: The state of North Carolina secedes from the Union. Joining The Confederacy
# 1873 – Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis receive a US patent for blue jeans with copper rivets.
# 1932 – Amelia Earhart takes off from Newfoundland to begin the world’s first solo nonstop flight across the Atlantic Ocean by a female pilot, landing in Ireland the next day.

but then I changed my mind to something that represents me far better:
# 1916 – The U.S. town of Codell, Kansas, is struck by an F2 tornado.
# 1917 – The U.S. town of Codell, Kansas, is struck by an F3 tornado.
# 1918 – For the third consecutive year on this date, the U.S. town of Codell, Kansas, is struck by a tornado.

# 1806 – John Stuart Mill (of his own free will), English philosopher
# 1970 – Louis Theroux, British television presenter

# 1503 – Lorenzo di Pierfrancesco de’ Medici, Italian patron of the arts
