Today is October 11, 2012. It is the 284th day of the year, and according to Wikipedia (and, you know, math) there are 81 more days until we ring in 2013. On this day in 1890, the Daughters of the American Revolution were founded in Washington DC. In 1910, Theodore Roosevelt (who just so happens to be my cousin a few times removed) became the first U.S. president to fly in an airplane. In 1975, Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham tied the knot. Also in 1975, Bruce Springsteen scored a massive hit with “Born to Run.” And in 2012, Weyland Corp. of Prometheus fame, was founded.
Also, today is 10/11/12. Yep, Consecutive Integer Day. In its honor, we’ve rounded up our 10 favorite counting videos. So, in 5, 6, 7, 8…
