  • The Establishment of Euros

    The Establishment of Euros
    Eleven European countries took a historical step forward by all adopting the same currency, called the "euro." Because of this, people can travel to differnet countries in Europe without having to exchange their currency for that of another. It can be said that the technical change over to the euro was a huge success.
  • USA vs Microsoft

    USA vs Microsoft
    Doesn't this just sound crazy? This was the day that Judge Jackson (this was a trial) stated that Microsoft had commited monopolization, attempted monopolization, and tying in violation of Sections 1 and 2 of the Sherman Act, and his remedy was that Microsoft must be broken into two separate units, one to produce the operating system, and one to produce other software components. Like I said, crazy, right?
  • George W. Bush Becomes President

    George W. Bush Becomes President
    This was the day that George W. Bush took the oath of office to become the 43rd president of the United States. Before he was president, he was governor of Texas for six years. Some people say that Bush was a bad president. If that's true, how did he get re-elected? HUH?

  • Sweden says "No"

    Sweden says "No"
    After the establishment of the euro in 1999, multiple countries had adopted it to use as currency. Sweden was not one of those countries. This was the day that Swedish voters rejected joining the Economic and Monetary Union of the European Union and adopting the Euro. Way to stand out, Sweden.
  • The Founding of Facebook

    The Founding of Facebook
    This website was founded at Cambridge, Massachusetts. SInce this website was founded, many children ages 10 and up mindlessly slave away, updating their status to say something that nobody cares about. Are you happy now, founders?
  • George W. Bush is Re-elected

    George W. Bush is Re-elected
    George returned to the White House for four more years of presidency. This time, his opponent was John Kerry, Senator of Massachusetts. Try explaining this, George-haters.
  • Pluto is Declared to be a "Dwarf Planet"

    Pluto is Declared to be a "Dwarf Planet"
    Everybody remembers this. It's the day that the IAU defines the term "planet" and hurts poor little Pluto's feelings by telling it that it's too small to hang out with Jupiter and his gang of gas giants. Just think; Pluto was discovered over 70 years ago and it was living the good life. Then, he is informed that he was never supposed to be able to play with the big boys. It's not like Mercury is much bigger!
  • Another Earth?

    Another Earth?
    Another planet was discovered on this day. It is a potentially Earth-like extrasolar planet dubbed "Gliese 581 c." It may be able to sustain life, but it is still unconfirmed.

  • Total Lunar Eclipse Strikes Again

    Total Lunar Eclipse Strikes Again
    After the last total lunar eclipse in 2008, another one occured on this day. This was the first total lunar eclipse to occur on the day of the Northern winter solstice and Southern summer solstice since 1638. Isn't that something?
