Malacanan Palace
29 October 2009

Did you know that today is the internet's birthday? Can you imagine how the world would be without it? Along with the washing machine, the internet is one of the biggest innovations in the last 100 or so years.

Aside from the internet, these are few other people and events that happened on this day, October 29.

John Adams - President of the United States


Antonio Luna - Hero, Pharmacist. He wrote a piece titled Impressions which dealt with Spanish customs and idiosyncrasies under the pen-name "Taga-ilog". He fought duels with Spanish writers who wrote insultingly of Filipinos. He was rumored to be a ladies’ man. In Europe, Luna and Jose Rizal once quarreled over their interest in the same girl, a French mestiza. Got f'd over by know-nothing coward Aguinaldo.

Winona Ryder - Actress/Kleptomaniac

Amanda Beard - Olympic swimmer/ FHM centerfold

1998 – Hurricane Mitch, the second deadliest Atlantic hurricane in history, makes landfall in Honduras.
