April 16 Actor Comic Charlie Chaplin London

What happened on April 16?

World-class actor and comic Charlie Chaplin was born in London in 1889 on this joyful day.

Throw us some joyful beats, Chance the Rapper (*1993)!
And yes, he’s a rapper by profession, in case you wouldn’t know.

Also good to know is the fact that the Natural Bridges National Monument was established in Utah on this very day in 1908. Only 4 years after Danish transportation behemoth Maersk was founded. You’ve surely seen their shipping containers somewhere.

If not on a freight boat or train, possibly loaded onto a plane. A plane that we enjoy thanks to Wilbur Wright (*1867). Together with his brother, Orville, they are the two aviation pioneers generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world’s first successful motor-operated airplane. Pretty incredible, right?

No less incredible than celebrating acting duo Claire Foy (*1984) and the one and only Martin Lawrence (*1965)!
