Today in History | It’s my birthday. Here’s some sh*t that went down on June 23rd | 17pics

Props to Wikipedia for the knowledge.

BIRTH: 47 BC – Ptolemy Caesarion of Egypt; son of Julius Caesar and Cleopatra (d. 30 BC)

The bastard child was also known as “Little Caesar”. He was later murdered by legendary Romans PapaJohniccus and PizzaHutian.

 

 

1757 – Battle of Plassey – 3,000 British troops under Robert Clive defeat a 50,000 strong Indian army under Siraj Ud Daulah at Plassey.

Guns and Cannons > Spears and Elephants… Usually.

 

 

1917 – In a game against the Washington Senators, Boston Red Sox pitcher Ernie Shore retires 26 batters in a row after replacing Babe Ruth, who had been ejected for punching the umpire.

Jack McKeon was the third base coach.

 

 

1926 – The College Board administers the first SAT exam.

Bet those 50,000 Indian kids would kick some ass now.

 

 

BIRTH: 1929 – June Carter Cash, American singer

Joaquin Phoenix is terrible.

 

 

1940 – World War II: German leader Adolf Hitler surveys newly defeated Paris in now occupied France.

The good news for the world is that Hitler was only renting Paris.

 

 

BIRTH: 1955 – Glenn Danzig, American musician

Dude sang “Mother”. Awesome.

 

 

BIRTH: 1956 – Randy Jackson, American music producer

He’s Randy Jackson. Not awesome.

Okay fine. Somewhat awesome, dawg.

1961 – Cold War: the Antarctic Treaty, which sets aside Antarctica as a scientific preserve and bans military activity on the continent, comes into force after the opening date for signature set for the December 1, 1959.

This effectively limited the real estate market for evil super-villains.

 

 

1968 – 74 are killed and 150 injured in a football stampede towards a closed exit in a Buenos Aires stadium.

At least they stayed through the whole game… Unlike Miami Heat fans.

 

 

BIRTH: 1972 – Zinedine Zidane, French footballer

Yes, he head butted the after birth on the way out.

 

 

BIRTH: 1979 – LaDainian Tomlinson, American football player

The reason I win at used to win at Fantasy Football and have a lethal Campbell’s Chunky soup addiction.

I was unleashed on this rock today. (Note- Photo might not be me)

 

 

1989 – The U.S. Supreme Court rules that a law passed by the U.S. Congress banning all sexually oriented phone message services is unconstitutional.

Damn right.

 

 

2009 – Ed McMahon, American television personality

Ed McMahon bought the farm… Unfortunately that was also foreclosed on. (Too soon)

 

 

June 23rd is Father's Day in Poland.

Joanna Krupa is Polish. Has a dad. Win.
