january 10

this is a cool meme found in mactavish's lj: enter your birthdate into Wikipedia and list three events, two births, and a death that happened on that day in any year.

49 BC - Julius Caesar crosses the Rubicon, signaling the start of civil war.
1920 - League of Nations holds its first meeting and ratifies the Treaty of Versailles ending World War I.
1927 - The film Metropolis by Fritz Lang premiers.

1887 - Robinson Jeffers, American poet (d. 1962)--ok this is a little eerie as this fellow was a west coast poet who was born on what was to become my birthday and then died the year that I was born.
1938 - Willie McCovey, American baseball player

1778 - Carolus Linnaeus, Swedish botanist (b. 1707)

some interesting things have happened on my day.
