    Considering that would be before the Gregorian calendar, it'd be kinda hard to work out "this day".

    Well I'm pretty sure a hell of a lot more happened ''on this day''. Just add up all the significant events that happened in history, divide by 365 and I'm sure you'd get a lot more than 5. More significant ones aswell I'm sure.

    <Teth> It's best not to talk to Gunther, though
    <Jarlaxle> why ? he's a legend
    <Teth> He's primarily a legend because he's very good at antagonizing the ops without going far enough to be pwnz0red

    <@erik> Gunther will, true to his nature, probably get himself banned again soon enough ;)
