Gabriele Falloppio, inventor of the condom?[edit]

An anonymous editor, 70.59.65.204 (talk · contribs · WHOIS) has repeatedly added the "Inventor of the condom" tagline to the above entry (death, 1562). Condoms have been in use for thousands of years in some form, so claiming that Falloppio invented them is incorrect. I've reverted the IP twice, and I'd like an outside opinion. -- Flyguy649 talk contribs 15:34, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

Cupcakes for Life, Should be added![edit]

It is a new national holiday started by the pro-life movement. This is a link to the main web page http://www.cupcakesforlife.org/ . It is a Holiday so it should be added. I did include a link to the site so I am not making it up. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 208.95.51.135 (talk) 16:42, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

There are no reliable sources documenting that this event is notable, and Wikipedia is not a soapbox. Favonian (talk) 17:12, 6 October 2009 (UTC)
It doesn't have a Wikipedia article, so shouldn't be listed on a day of year article. UK John UK (talk) 15:15, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

What are the guidlines for Births?[edit]

I added myself and it was removed, can you please post a births guideline like the one posted for anniversaries? Because I did not think there would be a restriction since I could not find one. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 15.203.233.75 (talk) 17:21, 21 July 2011 (UTC)
