Because I have no time to think new thoughts

I must steal them. This time from Laurie

Go to Wikipedia and look up your birthday (excluding the year). List three neat facts, two births and one death in your journal, including the year.

May 25

Three facts:

1521 - The Diet of Worms ends when Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor, issues the Edict of Worms, declaring Martin Luther an outlaw.

1935 - Babe Ruth hits his 714th and last home run at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, setting a baseball record that will stand for 39 years.

1979 - The movie Alien opens in theaters.

Two births:

1803 - Ralph Waldo Emerson, American essayist and philosopher (d. 1882)

1963 - Mike Myers, Canadian actor and comedian

One death:

1085 - Pope Gregory VII
