    The worst part is, that when this has gone on for 100 years and you'd think she has run out of historical events, there will be new stuff to mention from the 100 years that has passed.

    This thread fails.

    August 26th, it's like Christmas and Easter on the same day. A god among men was born that day.

    And no mention of it? Seriously?
