Aug 16 1977

Elvis Presley dies in his home at the age of 42, while sitting on the toilet. In the bathroom, he had been reading The Scientific Search for the Face of Jesus. Presumably, Elvis' search was concluded shortly thereafter.

Same day... Imagine that.

Lol. All you guys used Wikipedia didn't you? But I once sold my soul to god for amazing guitar playing ability. Then I tried to sell my soul to a pawn shop.


Yeah I sold my soul to a pawn shop but they only gave me half what was worth and sold it for double it was a worth. What a rip off
