It’s Monday, October 17, 2016, and National Pasta Day! Hooray! On this day in 1888, Thomas Edison was awarded the patent for the first motion picture machine, and, in 1814, a brewery accident killed eight people in The Great London Beer Flood. In 1931, Al Capone was convicted of income tax evasion, and two years later Albert Einstein fled from Nazi Germany to the U.S. And, on this date in 1979, Mother Teresa was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for opposing birth control, thereby allowing many Indians to suffer privation, as well as for her refusal to ease the suffering of her “patients”.
Notables born on this day include Rita Hayworth (1919), Montgomery Clift (1920), Margot Kidder (1948♥), and Wyclef Jean (1969, see here for a rousing performance with Shakira). Those who died on this day include Frédéric Chopin (1849) and Tennessee Ernie Ford (1991). Meanwhile in Dobrzyn, Hili is still ticked off at the Polish government, who haven’t yet finished with their attempts to totally ban abortion.
Hili: The politicians are more and more pious.A: Quite the opposite to the rest of the society.
Hili: Politycy są coraz bardziej pobożni.
Ja: Zupełnie odwrotnie niż reszta społeczeństwa.
