A birthday meme

CanadaI saw this meme on Marc's blog "No magic here" and he picked it up from "Dopplegangland".
Here's how it works: "Look up your birthday in Wikipedia, and pick the following: 4 events, 3 births, 2 deaths and 1 holiday".
So, for January 9th...
  1. 1788: Connecticut becomes the fifth state to be admitted to the United States.
  2. 1878: Umberto I becomes King of Italy
  3. 1951: The United Nations headquarters officially opens in New York City
  4. 2007: Apple Inc CEO, Steve Jobs, announces the iPhone


  1. 1913: Richard Nixon, 37th president of the United States (d. 1994)
  2. 1944: Jimmy Page, British musician and producer (Led Zeppelin)
  3. 1967: Claudio Paul Caniggia, Argentine soccer star


  1. 1873: Emperor Napoleon III of France (b. 1808)
  2. 1939: Johann Strauss III, Austrian conductor (b. 1866)


  1. Martyrs' Day (Panama) commemorates the 1964 riots over sovereignty of the Panama Canal Zone
Vi este meme en el blog de Marc "No magic here", que a su vez lo levantó de "Dopplegangland".
Funciona así: "Busca tu cumpleaños en Wikipedia, y elige lo siguiente: 4 eventos, 3 nacimientos, 2 muertes y 1 feriado".
Entonces, para un 9 de Enero...
  1. 1788: Connecticut se convierte en el quinto estado admitido en los Estados Unidos.
  2. 1878: Umberto I asume como Rey de Italia
  3. 1951: La sede central de las Naciones Unidas abre oficialmente en New York City
  4. 2007: Steve Jobs, CEO de Apple Inc,  anuncia el lanzamiento del iPhone


  1. 1913: Richard Nixon, 37º presidente de los Estados Unidos (m. 1994)
  2. 1944: Jimmy Page, músico y productor británico (Led Zeppelin)
  3. 1967: Claudio Paul Caniggia, estrella del fútbol argentino


  1. 1873: Emperador Napoleon III de Francia (n. 1808)
  2. 1939: Johann Strauss III, músico y director austríaco (n. 1866)


  1. Día de los mártires (Panama), conmemora los alzamientos en 1964 pidiendo por la soberanía de la zona del Canal de Panamá
