And now for something completely different

I'm going to steal a page from Shayna's blog and do this wikipedia thing. Go to wiki and put in your birthdate sans the year. Pick 3 events, births, and deaths. Discuss

Events:
  • 2000 - The Dow Jones Industrial Average reached a record high of 11,722.98 (I'm so money)
  • 1972 - The TV comedy Sanford & Son (an American import of the British comedy Steptoe and Son) premieres on NBC. (I didn't know that was a ripoff of a British show..maybe the office will last as well)
  • 1954 - Marilyn Monroe weds Joe DiMaggio. (both of these people are in We Didn't Start the Fire) (side note here: In 5th grade as a project my social studies teach Mr. Sarnoski had us research 30 items off this song. My mom hardly knew any of them and was a horrible reference for this project.)

Births:

  • 1969 - Jason Bateman, American actor (yes, the Jason Bateman. Shayna says I look kind of like him..don't know if that's good or bad)
  • 1741 - Benedict Arnold, American general and traitor (d. 1801) (yes The Benedict Arnold)
  • 1948 - Carl Weathers, American actor (yes THE Carl Weathers. Shayna says I look kind of like him..don't know if that's good or bad)

Deaths:

  • 1957 - Humphrey Bogart, American actor (b. 1899) (Here's looking at you)
  • 2006 - Jim Gary, American artist (b. 1939) (I thought this said Jim Cary when I first read it and I was like NO WAY! HE'S DEAD?! But then I saw it was some guy I never heard of)
  • 1968 - LL Cool J, American rapper and actor (ok, this is actually another birth but I didn't know anyone else on the death list and I have some MONEY people on the birth list.)
