I'm almost certain that there were earlier female fighter pilots, specifically in the Soviet Air Force during WWII, so I'm going to remove "perhaps the first".


"Recorded on this day"? why does that only appear on this entry? Should it appear at all. Trivia, at best. Matthewmayer 00:30, 3 Apr 2004 (UTC)



This seems to be a paraphrase from Sublimus Dei, which was signed May 29. See The Catholic Encyclopedia: "the Indians are truly men"...who " are by no means to be deprived of their liberty or the possession of their property"...nor "in any way enslaved"...but rather "should be converted to the faith of Jesus Christ by preaching the word of God and by the example of good and holy living". This seems to be another example of conversion from a historical Julian date to a proleptic Gregorian date, though it's off-by-one. - Nunh-huh 06:05, 9 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Dear Mr. Trogel: Thank you for for pointing out my error on the June 9 page. I did not realize there was no information readily available on Mr. Perfetto. I regret his exclusion from the article, but until one of us discovers a source of information on him, I am afraid that he will have to remain an enigma.

Good day M Muise[edit]

Deleted from this day. -- 13:05, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

National Sex Day[edit]

6/9 is National Sex Day, it's all over Facebook today. What's required for it to be added to Wikipedia? -- (talk) 21:06, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

An article, at a minimum. Then proof that it happens every year and is widely observed. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 21:12, 9 June 2011 (UTC)
