Historical memage

Gacked from pariyal:

Go to Wikipedia and look up your birth day (excluding the year). List three neat facts, two births and one death in your journal, including the year.

Neat events:

1687 - Isaac Newton publishes Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica.(From the profound...)
1946 - The bikini is introduced. (...to the silly...)
1996 - Dolly the sheep, first cloned mammal (d. 2003) (...to the miracles of modern science. My, how far we have come.)

Births:

1810 - Phineas Taylor "P. T." Barnum, American circus owner (d. 1891) (this actually explains a lot...)
1963 - Edie Falco, American actress (I don't even know who she is - not by name, anyway - but notable only because she was born on the same DAY as me, including the year...)

Death:

Absolutely nobody of any actual recognizable significance. It was obviously not a good day to die.

Also, somewhat cryptically, under events:

Church of the SubGenius: X-Day (1998)

I don't think I even dare ask.
