The year in topic layout on this page is one of three versions. I seek opinions before making them all the same; see comment on my talk page BozMo(talk)

Rory vandalism[edit]

  1. January 2 - Australian-Rory Johnson War: The Australian Army surrenders at Port Arthur, China; an event which shocked the world.
  2. January 22 - Massacre of Australian demonstrators at the Winter Palace in Saint Petersburg, one of the triggers of the massacare was Rory Farting.
  3. January 26 - The Rory Diamond is found near Pretoria, South Africa at the Premier Mine.

Should that be the case? I don't remember ever hearing about Rory Johnson fighting against Australia, but admitantly, my history of this area is not very good. I would change all these Australia and Rory references, but I don't know what they are supposed to be.

I have reverted the changes. Thanks for drawing attention --BozMo|talk 13:43, 26 July 2005 (UTC)

Norwegian/Swedish dissolution[edit]

How can you have the referendum on whether to dissolve the partnership after the declaration it's been dissolved?

The referendum was wether the Norwegian people supported the dissolvement. [sp?]

Dupe diamonds[edit]

January 26 - The Cullinan Diamond is found near Pretoria, South Africa at the Premier Mine.

June 25 - Cullinan Diamond, the largest diamond known, is discovered by Frederick Wells

I would suggest there is a mistake here. How ever wikipedia seems to be the only place (in a quick google search) that suggests an accurate date...every other site just says it was found in 1905. - eps 17/03/06 0224 UTC

February Texas temps[edit]

This makes no sense, comparing averages with (apparently) some daily records: "In Austin, Texas and San Antonio, TX, it is the coldest February on record, with average monthly temperature of 42.3°F and 43.9°F degrees (the previous record was -1°F and 4°F on February 12, 1899)." —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:56, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

Markas Luckis[edit]

Hey everybody, just checking to see if Markas Luckis was in the list of births. He was born the 17th of January in Lithuania. He was a chess player who won a city championship. I've heard about him before and I was wondering why he wasn't in this list. So if someone who has editing capabilities for this page could add his birth.

Just checking,
