Thrilled to be tagged by ruebert, because no one ever tags me for memes.

Go to Wikipedia and type in your birthday (month and day). Then you write down 3 events, 3 births, 3 deaths, 3 holidays, and tag 3 friends.

* 1930 – The Motion Pictures Production Code is instituted, imposing strict guidelines on the treatment of sex, crime, religion and violence in film for the next thirty eight years. [Hehehehe, you said 'sex'....heheheheh]
* 1970 – Explorer 1 re-enters the Earth's atmosphere (after 12 years in orbit). [An extra one because I feel so bad about including the next one. Also SPACE.]
