Every year on husband's birthday our insurance agent sends him one of those "What happened on the year of your birth" cards. I don't know if he's aware of the fact that the card mostly notes the doom and destruction that occurred in 1970. I like to think he does know and it's an insurance salesman joke, but I suspect not.
It's a fantastic card though. Because really, what could say Happy Birthday more than, HOUSTON WE'VE GOT A PROBLEM! or attacking Cambodia?
