Trivial. Underground ezine. Nuff said. --mav 07:59, 18 Nov 2003 (UTC)

I've removed:

I haven't been able to find a source for this, and it does seem implausible unless a suitably odd definition of "Internet" is used (the first international connection of Usenet (to Canada) was a good seven years earlier, and the term was in use back then... If anyone does know what event it refers to and wants to add it back, feel free; possibly also add to History of the Internet? Shimgray 21:41, 4 Nov 2004 (UTC)

I think Norway was the second country to get connected. Emuzesto 11:18, 17 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Seems unlikely somehow; I suspect however it's defined, it's likely to end up having been Canada. Don't suppose you know the basis of the Norwegian claim, do you? Shimgray 11:35, 17 Nov 2004 (UTC)


  • 1911 - Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. was founded on the campus of Howard University.

Is there any real need to mention the creation of Fraternities? Its hardly important and most people haven't heard of them. I have, however left in the entry on America's oldest continuous social fraternity - as that at least deserves a mention, being the oldest and all, but the other humdred or so throughout the year seem pretty pointless.

  • 2000 - One of the things of it says "SIT" and when you click it takes you to an disam page...cant you narrow that down...i for one have no idea what a "SIT" is so how are others who don't know, suppose to know? ChopAtwa 09:46, 17 November 2006 (UTC)

Incidents like this are usually forgotten by most people before the next one happens. Is an incident that is so inherently forgettable notable enough for this page? -- Dethme0w 06:18, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

If it was slain, it was never unkillable. If video game releases are not allowed here, then why should what amounts to a high score be? -- Dethme0w 06:18, 15 April 2007 (UTC)
