December 20th, 1957.

"On this day in 1957, while spending the Christmas holidays at Graceland, his newly purchased Tennessee mansion, rock-and-roll star Elvis Presley receives his draft notice for the United States Army."

Kind of interesting I guess. What historical things happened on your birthday?

Quote by Wikipedia.org
These nouns are often used with a form of "to be" rather than "to have," e.g., "he is pwnage" rather than "he has pwnage". Either is a more emphatic way of expressing the simpler "he pwns,"

Didnt know anything for mine so I googled and chose the top result :

The Great American Smokeout, November 17, 1994
Since 1977, the American Cancer Society (ACS) has sponsored the Great American Smokeout to foster community-based activities that encourage cigarette smokers to stop smoking for at least 24 hours. These activities include distributing materials to schools, hospitals, businesses, and other organizations that discourage tobacco use; encouraging restaurants and other businesses to be smoke-free for the day; and promoting media coverage of special events at the national and community level.

During the 1993 Great American Smokeout, an estimated 2.4 million (6%) smokers reported quitting, and 6.0 million (15%) reported reducing the number of cigarettes smoked on that day (1). In addition, approximately 1.6 million (4%) smokers quit smoking for 1-10 days after the Smokeout (1). Approximately 10.7 million packs of cigarettes were not smoked, resulting in an estimated $18.1 million not spent on cigarettes (1-3).

This year, the Great American Smokeout will be on Thursday, November 17. The goal of the Smokeout is to promote and encourage smoking cessation by helping smokers realize that if they can quit for 1 day, they can quit permanently. Information is available from local chapters of the ACS; for telephone numbers of these local chapters, telephone (800) 227-2345 or (404) 329-7576. Reported by: American Cancer Society, Atlanta. Office on Smoking and Health, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, CDC.

EDIT: there was this too:

1994 : "Sunset Boulevard" opens at Minskoff Theater NYC for 977 performances
1994 : 3rd Germany government of Kohl forms
1994 : Irish government of Reynolds resigns

I want a sarcastic Magic 8-Ball. That would be the best thing the world's ever seen.

Of course... if by "go out with" you mean "laugh at," then yeah, she'll go out with you for thirty seconds straight.
