… inventors' day and therefore a day we celebrate the perpetuum mobile (below)

1659: Denmark pwned Swedend after pwning attempt on Copenhagen@dk
1808: Jesse Fell burns anthracite
1916: Emma Goldman arrested for teaching birth control
1939: Lockheed XP-38 flies for some reason from California to New York in less than 7 days 18 hours and 13 minutes
1941: Chattanooga Choo Choo goes gold
1964: Greece doesn't like Turkey
1964: Turkey doesn't like Greece
1964: Taiwan doesn't like France
1971: Eighty-seven countries (including US and CCCP) don't like nukes in water
1978: China likes Aristotle
1990: Nelson Mandela released from prison
1990: Mike Tyson probably regrets saying hello to a 42 to 1 underdog called James

Notable first time appearances:
1755: Albert Cristoph Dies (but that doesn't happen until 1822. Strange)
1840: La Fille du Régiment
1843: I Lombardi
1855: Emperor Tewodros ver 2. People still want to be emperors, which probably says something about (lack of) knowledge of history.
1938: Sci-fi television
1903: Bruckner: Symphony no. 9 in D minor (not the posthumous one, of course)
1953: Jeb, brother of George
1959: Yemen wannabe
1964: Sarah, hockey mom and tea-drinker
1969: Rachel
1972: A Slipknot
1973: Count Grishnak who later instrumented last time appearances of serveral churches.

Notable first time appearance of Australians
1890: David Drummond
1937: Bill Lawry
1965: Vicki Wilson
1980: Marco Bresciano
1982: Neil Robertson

Notable last time appearances
55: Roman emperor wannabe Tiberius Claudius Caesar Britannicus (age 14).
According to Wikipedia "under mysterious circumstances". And still people wanted to be emperors!
244: Emperor Gordian ver. 3.
Also under mysterious circumstances. And still people wanted to be emperors!
1873: King Amadeus ver 1 of Spain.
Not mysterious as he kept on being Amadeus until 1890.

Notable perpetual appearance wannabes and therefore not linked to any day:
* U.S. Patent 4,151,431 "Permanent magnet motor", April 24, 1979[15]
* U.S. Patent 4,215,330 "Permanent magnet propulsion system", December 20, 1977
* U.S. Patent 6,362,718 "Motionless electromagnetic generator" , March 26, 2002
* U.S. Patent 6,523,646 "Spring driven apparatus", February 23, 2003
* U.S. Patent 7,095,126 "Internal energy generating power source", August 22, 2006
* U.S. Patent 7,379,286 "Quantum vacuum energy extraction", May 27, 2008

A patent claim for a perpetuum supermobile was rejected in 1979

NB! The US patent office follows the sound and explicit practice of rejecting a perpetual motion patent application without a working model. Still, applications may pass the scrutiny of an individual patent examiner and therefore be granted, but that doesn't mean that the USPTO think that they'll work. Far from it: A list of applications can be found under there under the perpetual motion gimmicks headline. I was especially intrigued by the Geforce emulator.

11500 googles for Pibbur, 0.06 % of them voting for the Republican party, 0.03% if we exclude those also voting for Wow.

I haven't checked "googles for googles for googles for googles for googles for googles for googles for googles for googles for googles for googles for googles".

Yepp. No mention of the unmentionable sport or the unmentionable peop… sorry the people down under. As I said I couldn't connect to Wikipedia whilen writing the major portion of the message, and Wikipedia is my main source.

Hmmm. Wonder if Watson is on line.

… the day pibbur goes to Copenhagen. And is connected to Wikipedia.

1279: The Song dynasty goes into Oblivion
1687: René-Robert Cavelier de La Salle probably regrets that he went to Texas to find the mouth of Mississippi
1916: Eight American airplanes goes after Pancho Villa
1954: Willie Tory goes down at Madison Square Garden
1979: The US House of representatives goes public, broadcasting day to day business on the C-SPAM.. sorry C-SPAN network
2008: GRB 080319B goes to Earth
2011: So does the moon. Not quite, but still quite close, compared to the above mentioned who's a healthy(!) 7.5 billion light years away.

Notable first time appearances:

1915: Pluto, 15 years before it was Pluto
1931: Legal gambling@Nevada, which probably has resulted in the last time appearance of 21 (only guessing) gamblers

Notable Last time appearances:
1863: SS Georgiana

Notable 2nd time appearances
1965: SS Georgiana

One google for Rumpelstiltskin and pibbur: http://www.vaticancityseek.com/forum…owprf&userid=0, which for some reason doesn't contain any reference to pibbur or the above mentioned dwarf. I guess we'll soon find more.

EDIT: Sorry, I forgot my duties

Notable first time appearances:
1967: Katia Tiutiunnik, the only Australian not devoted to deadly animals and weird sports.

EDIT 2: As I suspected. Two googles for pibbur and the dwarf now. Someone is watching me. I can tell.

Hey, I remember playing Oblivion, but I don't recall seeing the Song dynasty there. Where exactly was it?
