On This Day in 1355...

On this day in 1355, Oxford experienced one of the most violent riots in its history.

History hasn't recorded this, but I assume that this was in reality just an early celebration of my birthday, which occurred exactly 621 years later. (Not that this is an egocentric perspective or anything...) Nostradamus, eat your heart out!

And you thought that 10 Feb was meant to be a day of tranquility... That shows what you know!
