I was thinking something along these lines yesterday and then I stumbled across this article on Yahoo news this morning.

http://gma.yahoo.com...05577.html?vp=1

Is there something in the air in April that makes people flip a switch?  Is it just hating tax time so much people just snap?

Waco

Oklahoma City

Columbine

Virginia Tech

Boston Marathon...

Just thought it was odd that over the last 20 years, people seem to lose it in mid April...

Ok, that being said, that doesn't address all the other tragedy timings...just a little nugget of useless trivia I suppose...I tell my wife "I am a virtual warehouse of useless information"....

What's your thought folks?  Is there something in the air that whacks people out come spring time?

Waco technically started in February. :P As for what it is about April, who knows? The Columbine kids wouldn't have been affected by tax season.

I believe the columbine shooting date was chosen by the shooters as it was Hiltlers birthday.

There you go - Hitler's birthday.  :yes:

Seriously though, even on a personal level this particular week is right up there on my crappy list.

Here's something interesting: Hitler's birthday is April 20. He died on April 30.
April 30 coincides with Walpurgis Night which is:
Walpurgis Night (Walpurgisnacht) is a traditional spring festival on 30 April or 1 May in large parts of Central and Northern Europe. It is often celebrated with dancing and with bonfires. It is exactly six months from All Hallows' Eve.
Hitler was thought to have picked this date for a reason, when he took his life (Nazis were interested in the Occult).
Also worth mentioning is that Lincoln was assassinated on April 14, and the Titanic sank on April 15.

So it is.  Well on the plus side - 22 is a power number, good number to be born on in any month :tu:

This listing appeared on Yahoo this morning. Someone there also pointed out that April is the month the Titanic went down. So you see, the problem is April. We need to eliminate it from the calendar and have an 11 month year. Sure, it'll throw people off at first, but they'll get used to it. People like HerNibs will be given the choice of moving their birthday to March or May. :D

I'd be happy to cancel my birthday all together.  :)

You must have surely heard the old saying 'April Showers Bring May Flowers'

And of course everyone knows that May Flowers bring Pilgrims. :D
