Mind Blowing

Thoughts and other crap on people, life and maybe footie...
My Haiku:
I wrote this haiku
with the hope that just maybe.
It blows you away.

The name is irrelevant.
The person is male.
The age is older.
The stories are true.
This blog is mine.

Hari Ini Dalam Sejarah

12 January: Key events on this day:

1915 - The United States House of Representatives rejects proposal to give women the right to vote. (No wonder I'm a bit sexist. Maaf kaum-kaum ibu sekalian)

1966 - Lyndon B. Johnson states that the United States should stay in South Vietnam until Communist aggression there is ended. (I hope I don't make dumb decisions like this)

1966 - Batman the TV series debuts on ABC. (Pow! Kapow! Zap! Holy tight knickers, Batman!!)

1971 - All in the Family debuts on CBS. (I have the potential to become an Archie Bunker)

1971 - Harrisburg Six: The Reverend Philip Berrigan and five others are indicted on charges of conspiring to kidnap Henry Kissinger and of plotting to blow up the heating tunnels of federal buildings in Washington, DC. (Remember, remember the fifth of November? Guy Fawkes would've been proud)

1991 - Persian Gulf War: An act of the U.S. Congress authorizes the use of military force to drive Iraq out of Kuwait. (1-2-3-4! We don't want a f***ing war!)

1995 - Malcolm X's daughter, Qubilah Shabazz, is arrested for conspiring to kill Louis Farrakhan. (I am inspired by Malcolm X. Thanks to Spike Lee)

1998 - Nineteen European nations agree to forbid human cloning. (Thank goodness there are still rational people out there)

Oh, last but not least:
1980 - I was born. Yay!

Thanks to the greatest wonder of the modern era; Wikipedia, I am fortunate to learn that I share my birthday with some familiar names, such as:

1737 - John Hancock, American statesman (Signature signature. That was intentional btw)
1876 - Jack London, American author (I love The Call of the Wild!)
1944 - Joe Frazier, American boxer (Joe Labu ekekekeke)
1949 - Haruki Murakami, Japanese novelist (I've never read Murakami but been reading great reviews about his work)
1949 - Wayne Wang, Hong Kong-born film director (I am part of the Joy Luck Club)
1951 - Kirstie Alley, American actress (I wanna go where everyone knows your name)
1954 - Howard Stern, American radio host (I share his vulgarness)
1957 - John Lasseter, American director, founder of Pixar Animation Studios (Pixar doesn't make cartoons. They make great stories)
1959 - Per Gessle, Swedish songwriter and musician (Roxette) (Come join the joyride!)
1964 - Jeff Bezos, American entrepreneur (I have shopped at Amazon and you should too)
1965 - Rob Zombie, American musician (I am truly honoured, your Satan-ness)
1967 - Vendela Kirsebom, Swedish supermodel (I am speechless)
1968 - Heather Mills, British activist (I love activists. I love the Beatles too)
1970 - Zack de la Rocha, American musician (I totally flipped out when I learned we shared bithdays. Genius loves company huh?)
1980 - Amerie, American singer and songwriter (I don't know her, but isn't it ironic Amri and Amerie are born on the same day in 1980?)

I was really surprised to learn that I share birthdays with some of my idols even (not Rob Zombie okay). That's the power of Wikipedia for you. If I ever become a milliionaire, 5% of it will definitely go to Wikipedia. So for my birthday wish, let me wish for a great 2008 ahead and for me to become a millionaire (so that Wikipedia will benefit from it :P)
