… pibbur's next to last day in San Antonio. And the day when
0393 – Roman Emperor Theodosius I proclaims his eight-year old son Honorius co-emperor. We all though that in general Acts (one of the core classes in HL7) like this are not particularly sound, because the relationship (another HL7 core class) between an act like this and an act involving violent death of the participants (yet another HL7 core class) is likely. However, while none of them lived very long (48 and 29 years), their role (another core class) as emperor lasted for a fairly long period. And they both died of (for roman emperors) unnatural causes, disease.
1368 – In a coronation ceremony, Zhu Yuanzhang ascends to the throne of China as the Hongwu Emperor, initiating Ming Dynasty rule over China that would last for three centuries. His role as an emperor lasted for 30 years. However, as a LivingSubject Entity(yeat another core class) he lasted for 69 years.
1571 – The Royal Exchange, which despite the name does not involve exchanging royals opens in London.
1793 - The second, in a long rage of partitions takes place in Poland, which probably is not Poland as we (europeans, of course) know it.
1897 – Elva Zona Heaster is found dead in Greenbrier County, West Virginia. The resulting murder trial of her husband is perhaps the only case in United States history where the alleged testimony of a ghost helped secure a conviction. This may or may not be true, but since it makes fun of the US, I didn't bother to check the facts.
1960 - Down with the Trieste!!!
1997 – Greek Serial Killer Antonis Daglis is sentenced to thirteen consecutive life sentences, plus 25 years for the serial slayings of three women and the attempted murder of six others. Given that the average life expectancy of greek males are 77.59 years, he will be released some time in the year 3047. Or in 2696, if he's released after spending 2/3 of the sentence behind bars.
Notable first time appearances
1950 - The man who can make bombs using haywire, some youghurt, a screwdiver and conveniently available pieces of NO3 containing rocks. No, it's not Chuck Norris. (His birhtday is in March, and he's 10 years too old)
Notable last time appearances
2003 - The Pioneer 10 space probew, 12 (american) billion km from earth.
Now for the quiz: Which HL7 core class has not been mention in this post?
pibbur who should know the answer (he does) since he's taking the certification test today.
The cat is alive! And pissed!!!
