A day throughout history that has provided the world with monumental events. King Louis, Alex II and Ho Chi Minh were crowned on a March 2nd (or whatever the equivalent for getting crowned is when made President of Vietnam. A fancy hat made of Banh Mi perhaps.).

March 2nd was when Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 goals in a single game.
Dr Seuss, Lou Reed and Method Man were born March 2nd. D.H. Lawrence and Winston Churchill died on the second day of March.
Second of March this year, three new elements were added to the periodic table. Also as of that same day?

As for the future: maybe I’ll get around to doing all the shit I promised on the 10 year post (but probably not).

God bless you filthy beggars.
