    What happened...(A Guessing Game)

    on your birthday? Anything memorable or note worthy? Was it mentioned in a song? You can use the whole date including the year or just the month and day.

    Also a different way to find out how old/young we all are. You can make it as hard or as easy as you want. I'll go first.

    1. It was mentioned in the song 'In the Name of Love'
    2. James Earl Ray was sentenced to 99 years in jail for something he did on this day.

    Can you guess my date of birth?

    Monday morning, April 4th, a shot rings out in a Memphis sky. Free at last, they took your life, they cannot take your pride.

    04/04/1968, James Earl Ray assassinated Martin Luther King, Jr.

    John Wayne made a movie with a title that tells what was blown up, but he made the movie 14 years prior to the big boom of which I speak.

    Well the Rio Grande movie was made in 1950, so I'm guessing your bday is 11.12.64?

    The explosion happened 12.13.68 though. Is that your bday?

    No idea which is right, this is what I read:

    Gustavo Díaz Ordaz Lyndon B. Johnson Dec. 13, 1968
    El Chamizal, Mex. And
    El Paso, TX
    Under terms of the 1963 Chamizal Convention the U.S.-Mexico border was changed officially in a
    ceremony in El Paso, TX on December 13, 1968. Presidents Johnson and Díaz Ordaz, standing on a bridge
    between the two countries, set off an explosion shifting the Rio Grande into a new 4.5-mile concrete
    channel placing all the 176.92 hectares of the disputed El Chamizal area on the Mexican side of the river.
    The U.S. simultaneously received 193 acres of Mexican territory, the Northern half of Cordova Island.
