May 25th
On this day in…

585 BC: The first known prediction of a solar eclipse was made in Greece. When it didn’t happen, the date was moved to October 21.

1803: It was a dark and stormy night… when English novelist Edward George Bulwer-Lytton was born. The scalpel was mightier than the umbilical cord.

1895: Irish writer and poet Oscar Wilde was sentenced to two years hard labor for being a sodomite. The bottomline is… it was that day’s top story.

1927: Robert Ludlum was bourne.

2001: American Erik Weihenmayer, 32, became the first blind climber to reach the summit of Mount Everest. The view from the top didn’t impress him.

oscar wilde – sod him – and many did, but at least he came out of the closet rather than pretend for political reasons and benefit.
true lies – as sperminator knows – catch up with you eventually.

there are none so blind as will not, or in his case cannot, see.
he was actually at the top of snow mountain at dusneyland but no-one had the heart to tell him! only joking – great courage.

can’t agree more to the description of bagyong leila de lima. Very showbiz ang dating ng ale na ito, kahit noong nasa CHR pa. Puro dakdak, wala namang solid accomplishment.
