… a day when several important things happened

1774: Joseph Priestly invented oxygen.

1907: Lord Baden-Powell invented the first scout camp. Naturally, we will celebrate the event by a song: Be Prepared (Tom Lehrer)

1981: MTV invented the music video tv show. The first entry was Video killed the radio star. What's really strange is that the two guys responsible (Trevor Horn, Geoff Downes) some time after joined the prog. rock group "Yes", resulting in the album "Drama".

30BC:Roman emperor Octavian (better known as Augustus?) invented roman rule over Egypt. AFAIK lady C wasn't too happy about that.

1498: Christopher Columbus invented Venezuela
