On this day history facts - 17th April


On this day in history in 1973, George Lucas began writing Star Wars.
It was a simple story: Boy lives a boring life with Aunt and Uncle. Boy meets droid. Boy falls in love with droid. Pushes his buttons. Cleans his insides.
Droid tries to communicate his reservations about this level of contact, but can only manage some beeps.
The beeps get quicker.
Boy tinkers some more. Droid ejaculates a hologram of a pretty woman. Help me Obi Wan Kenobi, you're our only hope.
Droid is embarrassed.
This has never happened before.
It panics and escapes.
Boy chases droid. Whilst he's away "not" fixing the generators like he'd been asked to do, Boy's Aunt and Uncle get killed.
Boy captures droid.
Then Boy meets old man.
Boy is groomed by old man. Would you like to see my Lightsaber? Whoosh it around a bit? Yep, a bit more. Here, put my helmet on your head and swing your Lightsaber around.
Yep, just like that.
Trust in the Force, Luke. Feels good, doesn't it?
Now you're ready to know the truth. You kissed your sister, you sicko-pervert.
And if Boy liked it, he should've put a ring on it.
Boy finds out his father is an asthmatic psychopath. Boy kills father. The End.
This day in history in 1937 marked the first ever appearance of Daffy Duck in Porky's Duck Hunt.
Did you know: Daffy Duck is the 3rd most featured character in Looney Tunes. Only Bugs Bunny and Porky Pig featured more.
Of course, you're all familiar with Daffy Duck's favourite phrase?
"What's up doc'"
Nope, wait a minute, that's Bugs Bunny.
Okay, I'm lost, what the heck did he say?
Who cares. He's very funny. So, let's all laugh at The Duck.
"You're deth-picable."
Did you know: Only one of Warner Brother's characters is older than Daffy Duck. Nope, not Bugs Bunny. He is third. It's actually Porky Pig.
And I'm guessing you knew Daffy Duck had a wife? And her name?
On this day in history in 1951, the Peak District became the United Kingdom's first National Park.
On this day in history in 1964, Jerrie Mock became the first woman to fly solo around the world in a airplane.

On this day in history in 1970, Apollo 13 returned to Earth.
Apollo 13 had a problem before it reached the moon, its intended target, which was made famous by the movie Apollo 13 starring Tom Hanks.
On this day in 1974, the least talented of the Spice Girls, Victoria Beckham, also known as Posh Spice, was born.
She is not most famous for being in the Spice Girls, but rather more famous for being the wife of footballer (soccer) David Beckham.
