Birthday Meme

Gacked from paynesgrey.

Go to Wikipedia and look up your birth day (excluding the year). List three neat facts, two births and one death in your journal, including the year.

October 25


Facts:
1760 - George III becomes King of Great Britain
1854 - The Battle of Balaklava during the Crimean War (Charge of the Light Brigade). (There was also a Heavy Brigade. They are less infamous.)
1938 - The Archbishop of Dubuque, Francis J. L. Beckman, denounces Swing music as "a degenerated musical system... turned loose to gnaw away at the moral fiber of young people", warning that it leads down a "primrose path to hell". (I <3 primrose paths)

Births
1912 - Minnie Pearl, American comedienne and singer (d. 1996) (Don't know her music but you gotta love the hat)
1924 - Billy Barty, American actor (d. 2000) (I picked him not knowing that much about him but having generally positive feelings. Apparently he was a pretty amazing guy.)

Death
1760 - George II of Great Britain (b. 1683) (Tying in with Fact 1)



Dear Okaasan-7,
Your fanfic 'New Year, New Students' was removed by MM.org administration staff due to:
Your story has violated the 500 words or more requirement. Further violations of this rule may bring your account under review.</em>

Please keep in mind that continuous violation of MM.org rules may lead to your account being
permanently suspended.

Regards,

MM.org Management

P.S. Please do not reply to this e-mail.

2 other fics were also taken down. If that's the rules, that's the rules but the most recent one was posted in June, 2005. SUrely they would have noticed before now.

I just checked the length requirement:
Stories or chapters which are less than 100 words in length. Poetry is excluded from this rule.

I'm pretty sure they were all longer than 100 words though not 500.

Billy Barty - a long life and a short one.

Poor old George the II. Does anybody even remember him?

Most people would have picked Agincourt "Those many, those happy many..."

Billy Barty - a long life and a short one.

Heh, Heh! Too true. You have such a way with words, you oughta be a writer!

I think they remember George the III rather better.

Are you trying to tell me you never saw Minnie Pearl sing on Hee Haw?

'Course I did. That's how I know about the hat. But the songs were less memorable.

Minnie Pearl. You got lucky.

Well, part of it is luck and part of it is not selecting King Michael I of Romania.

before she died, what did Minnie Pearl and Salman Rushdie have in common?

they both had a price on their head...
hehehehahahahahahahahehehehehehehehohohohohohohohohohoh

I'm sure they buried her in her hat.

(actually, that was pretty good.)

Strange about MM.org. I have never like them anyway.

Does anyone ever review there?

I do, sometimes, but it isn't easy with their dang spam codes.

I didn't know that about the 500 words thing. What about my ficlets? Anyway, I usually didn't bother to review. I only posted there, however, because FFN won't let people write what they want and I can't stand the AFF format.

Don't feel bad. At least you still have your account, right? Can you post it again, maybe in a collection of one-shots or something? Maybe it won't be noticed a second time. How the heck did they notice it the first time anyway?

Tragically, this person is being completely deleted from MM.org according to her author's note (which violates MM.org policies for posting an author's note instead of a chapter): http://www.mediaminer.org/fanfic/view_ch.php?cid=383258&submit=View+Chapter&id=112665
