This incredible day provides so much action we could shoot a movie about it!
So let’s kick off by celebrating the release dates of Jurrasic Park in 1993 and E.T. in 1982.
The Limelight Department, one of the world’s first film studios, is officially established on this day in Melbourne in 1892. Movie production leaped processes leaped forward from that day onwards. Well done, Straya!
Explorer Jacques Cousteau (*1910) is the guest of honor at today’s birthday celebrations and composer Richard Strauss (*1864) rocks the crowd with his happy tunes.
Founder of Toyota automobiles, Kiichiro Toyoda (*1894), brings out the sake whilst actor Peter Dinklage (*1969) brings his favorite wine. They celebrate the event that changed motorsports forever on this day in 1895. Paris–Bordeaux–Paris, sometimes called the first automobile race in history, takes place and is a marvelous event.
This date was slightly less marvelous for British explorer Captain James Cook in 1770, when he ran aground on the Great Barrier Reef.
He was still better off than the people of Troy, though. Ancient Troy got sacked and burned during the Trojan War and according to calculations by Eratosthenes, this was their fatal day.
Such a shame that Hugh Laurie‘s (*1959) character ‘Dr. House’ wasn’t around to fix their wounded. And fellow actor Shia LaBeouf (*1986) is completely right when he says that people should not make war and be nice to each other. Cheers to that. Be nice!
