July 24 is hardly a red-letter day, mostly distinguished, it seems, by war crimes and travesties of justice. However Macchu Picchu was rediscoved in 1911, Apollo 11 got home safely in 1969, and it's the Feast Day of St Christina the Astonishing!

I share my birthday with Wonder Woman and Amelia Earhert -- notable deaths this day include epidemiologist Richard Doll research pioneer into the links between smoking and health problems, and tragic Japanese short story writer Ryunosuke_Akutagawa, whose work you may have seen filmed as Rashōmon.

Your birthday (no year): three facts, two births, two deaths. Go play!
