A man with a sharp wit ...(Fun stuff)

On this day in 1957, Felix Wankel's first working prototype DKM 54 of the Wankel engine was running at the NSU research and development department Versuchsabteilung TX in Germany. In 1913, New York City's Grand Central Terminal opened as the world's largest train station. In 1893, Thomas A. Edison finished construction of the first motion picture studio, the BPublish Postlack Maria in West Orange, New Jersey. And in 1884, edition one of the Oxford English Dictionary was published. Happy Birthday Pauly Shore and Lisa Marie Presley (1968), Brandon Lee (1965-1993), Bill Mumy (1954), Rick James (1948-2004), Jessica Savitch (1947), Terry Jones (1942), Sherman Hemsley (1938), Garrett Morris (1937), President Boris Yeltsin (1931-2007), S. J. Perelman (1904-1979), Langston Hughes (1902-1967) and Clark Gable (1901). RIP Buster Keaton (d. 1966).

"Ahhh. A man with a sharp wit. Someone ought to take it away from him before he cuts himself."
