43? How'd THAT Happen?

April 23rd is the 113th day of the year.  It is also International Pixel-Stained Technopeasant Day, Independence Day for the Conch Republic, the 351th anniversary of the Treaty of Oliva between Sweden and Poland,  and the birthday of Minoru Shirota, Max Planck, and Oleg Penkovsky.  Youtube had its first video uploaded on April 23rd, 2005.  The ill-fated Soyuz 1 mission launched on this date in 1967.

And a year later, in a hospital somewhere in Chicago, a Wonderduck was foisted upon an unprepared world.  Who knew what that would lead to?


 Birthday candles!

3 I vaguely remember what it was like to be 43. But that was so long ago. My memory grows dim.
