So anywah. Meme. From ratboy via da bahr.

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

July 16th

1880 - Dr. Emily Howard Stowe becomes the first woman licenced to practice medicine in Canada. (Bonus fact cause it's neat.)
1945 - Manhattan Project: The Atomic Age begins when the United States successfully detonates a plutonium-based test nuclear weapon at the Trinity site near Alamogordo, New Mexico.
1969 - Apollo program: Apollo 11 launches from Cape Kennedy, Florida and will become the first manned space mission to land on the moon.
(yes, and I watched it on TV. My 13th birthday present.)
1994 - The planet Jupiter is hit by fragments of the Shoemaker-Levy 9 comet.
(I thought it was much more recent than that.)

1194 - Clare of Assisi, Italian follower of Francis of Assisi (d. 1253)
1952 - Stewart Copeland, American musician

1981 - Harry Chapin, American singer and songwriter (b. 1942)
