On this day...

Tis a great day in history. Robert the Bruce became King of Scotland this day and Martin Luther King finished his march on Montgomery. The slave trade in the British Empire was abolished. The Treaty of Amiens was signed to bring about peace.

Not to be forgotten was the birth of someone that would bring about his awesomeness upon this world. Someone that brought about everything that is good and holy. In some remote regions of the Earth this person is regarded as a gentleman and a scholar. Yes rejoice and be glad for this great day this man came upon us. For it is I, Wiwille, who was born 33 years ago today.

I'm old.

Another thing that happened this day: Sir Walter Raleigh was granted a permit to exploit virgins. Wow...

Happy Birthday, and may you be granted the permission to exploit a virgin of your own.

Miss Ash - Thanks. I try to keep it humorous in my old age.

Mattbear - It's comforting to know you'll always be older.

WIGSF - That is the best birthday wish ever.
