Sep. 10: Wikipedia game

This is a fun experiment. Post your results in the comments section below.

1. Go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday month and day only
September 18

2. List three events that occurred that day
There are lots, but these were my three favorites:
1837 - Tiffany and Co. (first named Tiffany & Young) is founded by Charles Lewis Tiffany and John B. Young in New York City, New York. The store was called a "stationery and fancy goods emporium."
1927 - Columbia Broadcasting System goes on the air
1983 - Rock band Kiss unmasks for the first time in an appearance on MTV to coincide with the release of new album Lick It Up

3. List two important birthdays
1905 – Greta Garbo
1933 – Robert Blake

4. List one death
1970 – Jimi Hendrix

5. Holiday or observance (if any)
These are all pretty boring, IMO:
In ancient Greece, the fifth day of the Eleusinian Mysteries
RC Saints - Feast day of St Joseph of Cupertino, Methodius of Olympus, Richardis, and Eustorgius I
Chile - Independence Day (first junta 1810)
