Dude’s supporters always seem to have this negative thing about advancements in science, except for maybe stuff like Viagra and those fancy dancy 1080 Sony Bravia flat screen TVs.

George Herman Ruth, Jr. was born 112 years ago today. Babe Ruth –“The Great Bambino” or “The Sultan of Swat” was born in Baltimore, Maryland.

Zsa, Zsa Gabor is 90 today – yikes!
