Given that the Gregorian calendar came into effect after these three, they didn't actually happen on your birthday.

I remember from history lessons that Tsar Nicholas II abdicated on the 2nd March, but if I recall correctly that was with the Julian rather than Gregorian calender. Now I can't feel self-important. Gutted.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

It was on my birthday that the Nazis and the Soviets signed a non-aggression pact and agreed to invade and divide Poland. The ironic thing is, I'm of a Polish origin myself.

Bryant Gumbel and Les Claypool were born on my birthday. The N64 came out too, I think. Also, all of those people died from poisoned tylenol too.
