On this day, Fifty years ago, Elvis was the top of the UK charts with “Are you lonesome tonight”

On this day, Forty years ago, Charles Manson was convicted of murder.

On this day, Thirty years ago, I was born.

An average apple tree – I assume in a spherical orchard of uniform density – planted on that day would have yielded 2,664.234 kg. apples, which could have sold for $10,630.30 and fed 4,470 people. Presumably people who did not get sick of apples. This entirely stupid fact brought to you by snackyspores and pokemybirthday.

Happy birthday to me.
