History of the World 8/19

Happy Birthday!!
Bill Clinton, 1946
Kirk Herbstreit, 1969

On this day:
In 1909, the Indianapolis 500 race track opens.
In 1942, the first American offensive begins in the Pacific during WWII at Guadalcanal.
In 1984, the world record for crawling is made at 27 miles.
In 2010, most frog fans are having panic attacks due to recent comments made by coaches and conference realignment.

Weird News of the Day!!
Fine Point of Florida Law: David Lowe, 47, was convicted in Brooksville, Fla., last year of "lewd or lascivious exhibition" after he sat in his car, masturbating, outside a convenience store while ostentatiously holding a large dildo to his mouth in front of a woman and her child. In July 2010, a Florida appeals court reversed the conviction and freed Lowe, pointing out that conviction under that particular statute requires "sexual activity," which is defined as occurring between two or more persons.

I think anything involving jerking off and dildos is going to make the weird news of the day.
