Wikipedia Meme

Shamus stumbled upon an interesting meme (at Tim Worstall's blog) relying upon Wikipedia's ridiculously comprehensive date pages:
Go to Wikipedia and look up your birth day (excluding the year). List three neat facts, two births and one death in your blog, including the year.
Like Shamus, I won't limit myself to the numbers above and will instead just list some things I think are interesting about September 13...
