Today in History…
I feel incredibly lucky to be living through the 440th anniversary of the day public kissing was banned in Naples, the 211th anniversary of the first use of ether as an anaesthetic, and the 80th anniversary of South Slavia’s approval of Italy’s annexation of Fiume.
Today is also the birthday of: Amerigo Vespucci, noted phrenologist Franz Joseph Gall, cricketer Phil Mead, Soviet foreign minister Vyacheslav Mikhailovich Molotov, and former Guyanan president Hugh Desmond Hoyte.
Who the hell compiles all this crap?
