    Hey all,

    On One of my birthdays, I got a ' This year in 1978' type book, wich detailed all the fads and events happening in that year.

    todays my Grandfathers 85th birthday, and I was thinking it would be cool to get him an online version of something similair. He's also from Scottland, so if they have an international version, even better...

    Any help will be greatly appreciated [​IMG]

    Some interesting stuff happened on my birthday, April 15. The Titanic sunk (struck the iceberg on the 14th), Lincoln died (shot on the 14th) and Pol Pot died. It all seems to fit with the IRS deadline.

    My birthday is quite eventful... The Civil War began, FDR bought the farm, Yuri Gagarin shot into space to be the first man to orbit the earth, the first space shuttle made it's inaugural flight, Constantinople was burned and pillaged during the Fourth Crusade, the first rock 'n roll song (Rock Around the Clock) was recorded and Galileo was convicted of heresy.
