COOL SHIT THAT HAPPENED TODAY: DECEMBER 17TH

  1. 1843 - Charles Dickens's Classic, A Christmas Carol, was published becoming an instant classic.
  2. 1903 - Orville and Wilbur Wright successfully fly with self-propelled air craft, traveling for 12 seconds and covering over 100 feet.
  3. 1944 - U.S. ends internment of Japanese Americans. It seems so barbaric to consider our nation did something like this. More horrifying that people today actually suggest we do the same for Individuals who practice the Muslim faith. Terrible.
  4. 1969 - The United States Air Force closes its study, Project Blue Book. An investigation that sought out answers to UFO sightings. It was closed as it was reported that "cannot be justified either on the grounds of national security or in the interest of science." Really no interest in science?
