Thanks to a link on a friend's Facebook page, I found myself looking up a copy of The Straits Times on the day I was born, and this is what happened:
Topless women were arrested in New York:
A recession was also happening:
The World Cup was happening in Mexico, amongst other things:
Man, was I born on a slow news day.
What is crazy is I can find out what happened on the days my parents were born, almost sixty years ago - and you can look up papers all the way back to 1845! Isn't it awesome? Tell me what happened when you were born!
