I've Been Tagged

It seems that I have been tagged with the Wikipedia thing. The object is to type in the month and day you were born and in your blog write down 3 events, 2 births and 1 holiday. So here is mine. August 13th.

In 1860 Annie Oakley was born. She is a Ohio native. She was born a few counties away. So that was pretty cool to find out. That chick kicked soo much ass!

In 1899 Alfred Hitchcock was born. I knew we shared a birthday. He was so far ahead of his time with his "out there" movies.

Now for the events. In 1913 Stainless Steel was invented by Harry Brearley. That in my opinion was a great invention.

1918 women enlist in the United States Marine Corps. That's also pretty cool. Women kickin' ass in the military.

1942 Walt Disney's Bambi premiers. That is still one of my favorite Disney cartoons. I'm still trying to figure out why they axed Bambi's mom in the first part of the movie. I guess then violence wasn't as big of a deal that it is now. I miss the old cartoons that beat the hell out of each other.

As for the holiday, since I was born on August 13th not much in that department. The only interesting thing I found was it is International Lefthanders Day. Well it's not a celebrated holiday but it's listed as one.

So that is what I found out on wikipedia. That is a pretty cool website. So I guess I'm off to tag a few people now.
