    Today was the birthday of some guy named Nikola Tesla. He must've been kind of a big deal, because a band named themselves after him. And I always thought The Oatmeal just really loved "Love Song."

    It was 100 years ago that the future show-Hitler-who's-boss track icon Jesse Owens was born. He was an Ohio State Buckeye, too!

    Online, it says this is the 30th anniversary of Tetris. Does anyone still play it? Or dream of/in it?

    Yesterday would have been Les Paul's 99th birthday. Who was Les Paul you ask? He had many innovative recording techniques, helped pave the way for electric guitars and pretty much helped get that rock and roll thing going.

    Yesterday was the 100th "birthday" of Babe Ruth's MLB career; he was a pitcher not an outfielder then, though.

    Starting 100 years ago today, the War to End All Wars began. Yay! No more wars!

    But in all absolute seriousness, it is hard to believe that a century has gone by since then.

    Do we know who ELIMINATED measles? 'Cause they're turning over in their grave now.
