Major events[edit]

Pearl Harbor 1941 was a major event. It should be mentioned in the intro. For September 11, the 2001 event is mentioned and rightly so. I can assure you that December 7 and entry of the allies into the war against Japan had greater significance for the American and Japanese people than September 11 had for the American people - or don't you think so?.

Please do not delete the fact about what happened in the bible without discussing it here. There is no reason that it should be deleted. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Joshim5 (talkcontribs) 18:19, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

What are you talking about, and how are sure it was something that happened on Dec 7? Lkjhgfdsa 0 (talk) 17:48, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

Random Event Removed[edit]

I found this:

"2013 – a garage door fell on Harry Styles and Kendall Jenner. god doesn't ship it bye." and removed it.

Cheers! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jacob843 (talkcontribs) 03:03, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

Quema del Diablo[edit]

Q d D is not mentioned at the link. My understanding is that everything mentioned here needs a supporting Wiki article, so I will remove it. --Richardson mcphillips (talk) 19:47, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

Pacific Southwest Airlines Flight 1771[edit]

I wanted to change "...then shoots both pilots and himself." to "shoots both pilots and steers the plane into the ground." The reason is that I believe the article never says that the attacker shoots himself. Instead it says that evidence indicates that he was alive until the crash and deliberately steered the plane into the ground. Here are some quotes from the article: "There was speculation that Burke shot himself, though this seems unlikely, because a fragment of Burke's fingertip was lodged in the trigger when the investigators found the revolver. This indicated that he was alive and he was holding the gun until the moment of impact." and "The remains of the flight data recorder (FDR) indicated Burke had pushed the control column forward into a dive." @1997kB: has reverted my change with the comment "It's clearly written he shoots himself". I have just re-read the article and did not find any mention of of the attacker shooting himself. What am I missing? Is it in one of the cited sources? Spike (talk) 16:28, 7 December 2017 (UTC)

I had a quick look and agree. If no-one makes a good objection in a day or so I'll re-instate your edit. Nortonius (talk) 16:43, 7 December 2017 (UTC)
Hello @Spike: I have changed the line to "steers the plane into the ground". Later I had some misunderstanding. Thanks for letting me know! ·•·1997kB 18:07, 7 December 2017 (UTC)
