You have some pretty interesting ones Eches. The ones that strikes me the most are the birth of Hitler(for obvious reasons) and the opening of Fenway Park. It's just amazing that they still play Baseball at Fenway Park, which opened 98 years ago. I wonder how long they'll keep it for. I watched the 63 point game from Jordan a few times, and till this day it's one of the best games I've ever seen.

PS: I like how you included your birth, I thought about doing it after I posting my thread, but you beat me to it LOL.
