Birthday meme

Thanks to holyoutlaw for doing all the work on this for me:
Search Wikipedia for your birthday, minus the year. List three neat facts, two births and one death in your journal, including the year each occurs.

Neat Facts:
1905 - Albert Einstein publishes the article "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies", where he introduces special relativity.

1908 - The Tunguska impact occurs in Siberia

2005 - Spain legalizes same-sex marriage.

Two births:
1286 - John de Warenne, 8th Earl of Surrey, English politician (d. 1347) (okay, just because he was the first.)

1917 - Lena Horne, American actress and singer

One death (well, three):
1971 - Crew of Soyuz 11
