Because I like Frosty too (granted, he's a Lakers fan, but nobody's perfect), I thought I'd join in, honoring him on his special day with a little “This Day in History”:
On this day in:
1535-- King Henry VIII is deposed and excommunicated by Pope Paul II. 1887-- Thomas A. Edison patented the kinetoscope, which produced moving pictures. 1935-- President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed an act preventing export of U.S. arms to belligerents. 1950-- Don Eagle defeats Gorgeous George to win the Boston version of the AWA World Heavyweight Title for a second time. Eagle was the last person to hold this title before it was replaced with the AWA Eastern Heavyweight Title. 1984-- Pinklin Thomas defeated Tim Weatherspoon to win the WBC [World Boxing Council] World Heavyweight Title. 1997-- Hayabusa, Masato Tanaka and Kouji Nakagawa defeat The Gladiator, Hisakatsu Ooya and Mr. Gannosuke to win the FMW World Street-Fight Six-Man Tag Team Title.
Happy birthday, Frosty!

Nearly twenty people reply and NO love for Terry Pratchett's Discworld? C'mon people, if Douglas Adams does it for you, this guy will too. On another note, any Hitchhiker's fans who haven't given Adams' Dirk Gently books a look, are missing out.
