LOTS of History
Welcome to the after-Monday report & Happy Tuesday, humans.
Today in the wiki history, there’s a little bit.. no.. LOTS of history here..
- 1774 – Rhode Island becomes the first of Britain’s North American colonies to ban the importation of slaves
The Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations subsequently became a destination
for religious and political dissenters and social outcasts, earning it the moniker “Rogue’s Island”.
Rhode Island was the first colony to call for a Continental Congress, which it did in 1774,
and the first to renounce its allegiance to the British Crown, which it did on May 4, 1776
Pip’s notes – and May the 4th be with you, Rhode Island…
- 1881 – The USS Jeannette is crushed in an Arctic Ocean ice pack.
a naval exploration vessel which, commanded by George W. De Long,
undertook the Jeannette expedition of 1879–1881 to the Arctic.
After being trapped in the ice and drifting for almost two years,
the ship and her crew of 33 were released from the ice, then trapped again,
crushed and sunk some 300 nautical miles (560 km; 350 mi) north of the Siberian coast.
The entire crew survived the sinking, but eight died while sailing towards land in a small cutter.
The others reached Siberia, but 12 subsequently perished in the Lena Delta, including De Long.
Pip’s notes- now I may be one for comfort.. in Florida.. but why the heck would
you want to go further into a place that makes your face freeze?!
- 1966 – The United States Supreme Court rules in Miranda v. Arizona that the police must inform
suspects of their Fifth Amendment rights before questioning them (colloquially known as “Mirandizing”).
- 1983 – Pioneer 10 becomes the first man-made object to leave the central Solar System when
it passes beyond the orbit of Neptune.
Pip’s notes- this is not Vegor from Star Trek. Live long and Prosper.
Pip’s side notes- as a non-emotional being, did Spock turn his “live long and prosper”
upside down to ‘flick them off’…? (yes, it’s a Star Trek thing)
- 1999 – BMW win the 24 Hours of Le Mans, with Toyota being a contention for the win until a puncture in the last hour relegated it to second, Toyota not participating in Le Mans again until 2012. The race was also remembered for the flipping incidents involving the Mercedes cars, the team withdrawing mid-race and Mercedes never entering Le Mans again
Pip’s notes- I’m more confused than a dude getting mixed signals on Prom night.
The Le Mans race just took place, yeah? Chevy put a NASCAR Camaro in the race (according to the social media posts) and Ford is putting the Mustang in the 2024 Le Mans, according to another post I scrolled by.
- 2018 – Volkswagen is fined one billion euros over the emissions scandal.
Pip’s notes- Pip has been waiting “the right time” to pull a diesel TDI from a junkyard. Freaking 40-60 mpg?!
- 1952 – Jean-Marie Dedecker, Belgian martial artist and politician
Pip’s notes- (Pip expresses noteable confusion) I don’t like politicians, but I appreciate martial artists…
- 1953 – Tim Allen, American actor, comedian, and producer
Pip’s notes- That ‘other’ Tool man…
- 1973 – Tanner Foust, American race car driver and television host
He competes in rally, drift, ice racing, time attack, hill climb and rallycross with multiple podium placements,
national championships, and world records.
- 1981 – Chris Evans, American actor and producer
Happy Birthday, Capt. Yeah, that Chris Evans.
- 1986 – Ashley & Mary-Kate Olsen
American child actress, fashion designer, and businesswoman
Best known for the TV show ‘Full House’
- 1993 – Deke Slayton, American soldier, pilot, and astronaut (b. 1924)
a United States Air Force pilot, aeronautical engineer, and test pilot who was selected
as one of the original NASA Mercury Seven astronauts. He went on to become NASA’s first Chief of
the Astronaut Office and Director of Flight Crew Operations, responsible for NASA crew assignments.
- 2010 – Jimmy Dean, American singer and businessman, founded Jimmy Dean Foods (b. 1928)
an American country music singer, television host, actor and businessman.
He was the creator of the Jimmy Dean sausage brand as well as the spokesman for its TV commercials.
He became a national television personality starting on CBS in 1957.
He rose to fame for his 1961 country music crossover hit into rock and roll with “Big Bad John” and
his 1963 television series The Jimmy Dean Show gave puppeteer Jim Henson his first national exposure with his character, Rowlf.
