    Yep, Abe Lincoln and Charles Darwin on the same day.

    I'll bet that their mothers never dreamed that some folks would still be fighting about them, today.

    I know none of you on Facebook and no need to start another thread about it, but I also belong on that list. ;D

    No, we've long since stopped fighting about you and reached a consensus that you are a douchebag. ;D

    But I still like you. :D

    But to Lincoln and all, MSN always puts out these cheesy articles if some sort of holiday is present, but this one was pretty cool.

    The leader with the pen who signed his name to free all men and Darwin on the same day? Didn't know that.
  7. Was Darwin not free?

    Lincoln's birthday is being treated like a federal holiday in my hometown.

    Everything is closed, and it's annoying as fuck.
