1 Month, 1 Days, 12 Hours, and 5 Minutes

That is the time until my birthday. I will be turning 15 years old, and I will be officially the coolest kid in the world. I would like to add that not only is November 18th my birthday, but it is also the birthday of the amazingly beautiful, very talented, and ridiculously funny Laura Conroy. She will be one year younger than me, but 6 years more mature. In order to confirm that my birthday is the best day in all the world, I did a little research to see what other amazing events happened on November 18.

1883– An international agreement divides the U.S. into 4 time zones.
Ha, see that. 4 time zones. Does your birthday include the dividing of 4 time zones? Didn’t think so.

1967– Population of the U.S. passes through the 200,000,000 mark.
Oh hi, my name’s Boony. On my birthday, U.S. passed the 200,000,000 population mark. Did they do that on your birthday? Nope.

1421 – A seawall at the Zuider Zee dike breaks, flooding 72 villages and killing about 10,000 people in the Netherlands.
Oh shit, I’m dutch.

2001 – The Nintendo GameCube was released
Just imagine it. 5 years ago on my birthday, thousands of nerd across the land were flocking to my house to wish my a happy birthday. They then purchased GameCubes and lived in their parent’s basement.

1493 – Christopher Columbus first sights what is now Puerto Rico
You’re welcome, Puerto Rico. Without me and my birthday you would never have been sited.

1997 – Gary Glitter is arrested in the United Kingdom on child pornography charges.
No one knows this guy, but apparently he loves child pornography and his last name is Glitter. FAG

I have also composed a list of people who share my birthday. These people are either famous, or will be famous at some point. And if you dare doubt me I will make you eat your teeth.

Other November 18thers

Laura Conroy- A local babe
David Ortiz- Baseball player
Gary Sheffield- Baseball player
Fabulous- A rapper
OWEN WILSON- Actor with an ugly nose
Dr. Phil- Guy who goes on TV and yells at people and refuses to use public restrooms
God – He basically created the Earth

    This would be my birthday
    January 20

    Events
    1885 – The roller coaster was patented by La Marcus Thompson of, where else, Coney Island, NY. His coaster was 450 feet long with the highest drop being 30 feet.
    (yeah, rollercoaster, invented on my bday)

    1892 – The first organized basketball game was played by students at the Springfield, MA YMCA Training School.
    (yeah, basketball, invented on my bday)

    1929 – “In Old Arizona” was released. The movie was the first full-length talkie to be filmed outdoors. Mainly, the great outdoors of the states of Utah and California.
    (some crappy film, never seen it, but it sounds crappy)

    1937 – Franklin Delano Roosevelt became the first U.S. President to be inaugurated on January 20th. The “20th Amendment” of the “U.S. Constitution” set the date, officially, for the swearing in of the President and Vice President. The amendment was ratified by Congress in 1933.
    (so every four years i get to hear theat speech thing that says their gonna be a good president, on my bday.)

    1953 – A television show was transmitted from the United States to Canada for the first time. The CBS Television production of “Studio One” was transmitted to CBLT-TV in Canada.
    (international tv, yeah pretty cool…i know)

    1954 – The National Negro Network was formed on this date. Some 40 radio stations were charter members of the network.
    (black power)

    1958 – Elvis Presley got a little U.S. mail this day with greetings from Uncle Sam. The draft board in Memphis, TN ordered the King to report for duty; but allowed a 60-day deferment for him to finish the film, “King Creole”.
    (uncle sam wrote a personal letter to elvis presley to join the army. im sure that went over well)

    1964 – This was a big day in U.S. record stores as the first album by The Beatles was released. The LP, “Meet the Beatles”, became a huge success and was #1 on the charts by February 15, 1964. The British Invasion had begun. Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
    (British invasion, what a cool bday i have)

    1974 – After an auto accident that had almost taken his life five months earlier, Stevie Wonder was back at work, playing a gig at the Rainbow Theatre in London.
    The guy will never die)

    1980 – Super Bowl XIV (at Pasadena): Pittsburgh Steelers 31, Los Angeles Rams 19. The Rams led 13-10 at the half and 19-17 at the end of the third quarter. A 73-yard pass completion to John Stallworth and a Franco Harris 1-yard run changed that in the fourth quarter. MVP: Steelers’ QB Terry Bradshaw. Tickets: $30.00.
    (this is back when normal people could afford to goto the superbowl)

    1985 – Super Bowl XIX (at Palo Alto): San Francisco 49ers 38, Miami Dolphins 16. The only Super Bowl played at Stanford University Stadium saw Bill Walsh’s 49ers overwhelm Don Shula’s Dolphins. The 1984 49ers, the first team to win 15 games in a regular season (15-1), outscored opponents by 2 to 1 and had ten players voted to the Pro Bowl. MVP: 49ers QB Joe Montana. Tickets: $60.00. It was the most-watched Super Bowl game in history, seen by an estimated 115.9 million people. The program with the largest audience ever (aside from man landing on the moon) was the final episode of “M*A*S*H” in 1983. Super Bowl XIX also marked the first time that TV commericals sold for a million dollars a minute! That breaks down to less than a penny a person or a CPM (cost per thousand) under $9 or, in other words… not such a bad advertising deal… if you could remember the sponsors.
    (again, normal prices)

    1986 – New footage of the 1931 horror classic, “Frankenstein”, was found. It depicted the monster, played by Boris Karloff, throwing a girl into a lake and showed a hypodermic needle in the monster’s arm! Yeeeeeow! The scenes had been cut because they were considered too shocking for the 1930’s theatre crowd. They have since been put back in and the film has been rereleased.
    (Frankenstein is born on the same day as me. well, reincarnated on the same day.)
