… yet another day.
1220: Sweden was defeated by Estonian tribes. Ya…. eh … sorry.
1709: Bartolomeu de Gusmão demonstrates the lifting power of hot air in an audience before the King of Portugal. To quote ThreeDog@Fallout3: "Somebody fart?"
1963: Great Train Robbery in England. It was a birthday present to Ronald Biggs who on that very day turned 34.
Best wishes to "The Edge" who is 49 years today. A mere child, of course, but a great guitar player. Additionally, rumour (Wikipedia) has it Dustin Hoffman is 73 years today (tomorrow also, of course, but today is his first day as a 73-years-person)
