Moved[edit]

Moved the following stuff from February 22 here:

This is not a case in Tzol'kin calendar as this calendar counts days from the year [0. 0. 0. 0. 0] and has no strong similar term for a year as Gregorian calendar has. We must add days sequentialy and to watch for the leap years as astronomers do with Julian days. Thus we have for the years 2000 2001 2002 and 2003:

Julian day #: 2 451 598 and 207 499 316 days since the year [13. 0. 0. 0. 0] <- [12.19. 6.17.11] (leap year)
Julian day #: 2 451 598+364 and 207 499 680 days since the year [13. 0. 0. 0. 0] <- [12.19. 8. 0. 0]
Julian day #: 2 452 328     and 207 500 045 days since the year [13. 0. 0. 0. 0] <- [12.19. 9. 0. 5]
Julian day #: 2 452 693     and 207 500 410 days since the year [13. 0. 0. 0. 0] <- [12.19.10. 0.10]

Yes you can do this - but I don't see any sence on it. You've been talking somethings about noospheres and such and as it seems to me you contradict yourself. Time will tell (I deeply believe) that Tzol'kinlike datums will have some further meanings on our own reality... That was just my attempt to show some other ways on doing calendrix outta time. But obviously I didn't succeed. And perhaps I shall never. Another black spot on my birth day, he, he. Sorry for living, mon. --XJam [2002.04.12] 5 Friday (0).

Shannon[edit]

What does this mean: 2001 - Claude Elwood Shannon, mathematician (according to K. Devlin)? Who is K. Devlin, and why is there doubt about Shannon's death? -- Zoe

Baden-Powell[edit]

Why is the birthday of Sir Lord Baden-Powell mentioned twice? I don't think it is important here that there are two or more scouting assossiciations out there, but that this is the birthday of b.p. and his wife. --Claudio Röthlisberger

No Dolly?[edit]

I would have thought that The announcement of the first successful cloning of a mammal from adult cells would have been a bit more significant to put in the main page anniversaries than some of the things chosen. In fact one could argue that the announcement of the cloning of Dolly the Sheep was THE most important thing that has happened on this date.--Shearluck (talk) 21:18, 22 February 2010 (UTC)


I have noticed recently that events that have happened in the last few days/hours are turning up in both on this day and did you know. Should this be allowed to continue? I think articles should have a one year waiting period before they end up in the afore mentioned sections. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.45.12.148 (talk) 11:48, 22 February 2011 (UTC)

Removal of birth and death entries[edit]

Continuing the ongoing effort to reduce the size of the Births and Deaths sections to make them manageable, I've removed some celebrities with few or no articles in other wikipedias, moving the entries to the appropriate Year in Topic article if they were not already present.Deb (talk) 11:44, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
