Validity of events
If an event such as the victor of the Indianapolis 500 were included in this page, I can see why some people feel it of less importance than the events transpiring of world import, such as those of Tianenmen Square in 1989; however, if they are still factual, might there be a way to include them still, such as differentiating between sporting events and politics, and so forth? I will in fact do this, and hopefully the disambiguation in importance is not felt to still be frivolous, as I can only assume it was previously. --188.8.131.52 18:49, 24 January 2006 (UTC)
- there exist already articles such as 1976 in sports, but no articles such as May 30 in sports. i suppose if someone were interested, they could make all 366 day in sports pages. Kingturtle 21:52, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

Fake Person? Inconsequential Person?
I think this entry is a fake person or an inconsequential person.
1986 – William S. Mick "185668232", American activist, artist, musician.
There is no Wikipedia article that I can find. I've done a Google search for "william s. mick activist artist musician" and only two links came up: this page (May 30), and a sample "Harmonic Life Astro Chart" on the Harmonic Life Dating website (http://www.harmoniclife.com/sample.aspx?SampleID=227445).
There is a Facebook page "185668232" (http://www.facebook.com/oneeightfivesixsixeighttwothreetwo). "185668232" has authored two entries in Urban Dictionary (http://www.urbandictionary.com/author.php?author=185668232).
- Anything that does not link to a bio article should be removed on sight. No explanation is needed. You'll waste an awful lot of time if you try to research every one you see. That's why the basic guideline is so simple. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 01:27, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
2015 – Society event of the year in North Wales, the forthcoming wedding of David and Laura
Andrew Jackson & Charles Dickinson
I have removed the claim that the duel between Jackson and Dickinson was due to Dickinson's accusation that Jackson's wife was a bigamist; although many did make that accusation (and indeed their marriage was at first, technically, bigamist), there is no indication in the article on Dickinson that he had done so, and quite a length explanation of the cause of the duel that doesn't mention it.
