happy belated microdoft day everybody
sorry indin't post yesterday i was busy
april 5th:
1-General Douglas MacArthur died in Washington, D.C. at the age of 84. (1964)
2- go fro broke day:

Are you a gambler? Then, today, is your day. It's Go For Broke Day. Today is a day to put it all on the line, and take a chance. It might be money. Or, it can be a love relationship. Perhaps, it's time to initiate a risky project, or to take a new job.
Many of us go about our daily lives playing it safe, not taking big chances. If you are of a conservative ilk, you may have never gone out on a limb, or taken big risks. If this sounds like you, maybe today is a day to really let loose and "Go for Broke".
If you can muster up the courage to take a big risk, you can enjoy today by taking big risks and "Going for Broke". We will leave it up to you to decide whether the risk is worth taking.

Im not sure about your facts.
According to Wikipedia the first to the North Pole is Fredrick Cook but there is no evidence.
same thing with Matthew Henson and Robert Perry (they supposedly reached too quickly):
North Pole - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
So what do you guys think

OK.....
Well i was just wondering if any of you guys had any information or other facts.
Im inclined to think that they did not in fact reach the North Pole but probably somewhere really close to it, seeing as more than 90 years later they " copied" his trip and reached only five hours faster.

Who really cares anyway? It's nicer to think that they actually did it......and that includes the moon landing which they most definitely DID do - several times.

I believe that they did it. Especially after you read a couple of books about the North Pole. Plus im not that much of a conspiracy theorist. Im pretty sure they reached the moon. I just wanted to know who was first. Thats all.

Here's something for you Ali,
I particularly like the middle one, albeit a harsh penalty for public lewdness !

563 BC: Siddhartha Gautama, the founder of Buddhism, is born (traditional date).

217: The brutal Roman emperor Caracalla is assassinated while relieving himself at a roadside.

1904: The ‘Entente Cordiale’ is signed by Britain and France, finally ending centuries of intermittent conflict

Interesting that we can know the exact date to the very day of stuff 500 years BC!
