What happened

(1/4) > >>

Because no general discussion board could be taken seriously without's our...what happened...on your birthday?  Especially two or three monstrous-esque events if you can.

Here are mine:
1855-The Devil's Footprints appear in southern Devon
1587-Mary Queen of Scots is executed
Day of Saint Jerome Emiliani (patron saint of orphans, Baron Orelius should understand the irony)

Devious Viper:
612 BC - Destruction of Nineveh.
30 BC-    Cleopatra commits suicide
1861 -    Battle of Wilson's Creek
1966 -    (Year I was born) 1st lunar orbiter launched by US and Daylight meteor seen from Utah to Canada. Only known case of a meteor entering Earth's atmosphere & leaving it again
1969 -    A day after murdering Sharon Tate and four others, members of Charles Manson's cult kill Leno and Rosemary LaBianca.
1977 -    In Yonkers, New York, 24-year-old postal employee David Berkowitz ("Son of Sam") is arrested for a series of killings in the New York City area over a year's period.
1981 -    The head of John Walsh's son Adam is found in Hollywood, Florida. This event will later prompt the U.S. Congress to pass the Missing Children's Act, giving the Federal Bureau of Investigation greater authority to track the disappearance of children. It also makes Walsh a national spokesman against crime and eventually leads to the establishment of America's Most Wanted.
