This Day In History - September 25th


This Day In History, September 25th, 1793, Fletcher Christian was born.
Fletcher Christian is best known for his role in the Mutiny on the Bounty when he took over William Bligh's ship HMS Bounty on the 28th April, 1789, after visiting the paradise island of Tahiti.
Fletcher Christian and his men, keen to return to the warm bosom of Tahiti, to see some more bosoms, wrestled control of the ship from the rightful captain, William Bligh, who obviously had seen enough of women's fun bags to last a lifetime.
There are varying accounts of Fletcher Christian's death. It seems he died of natural causes whist committing suicide after he went insane and was murdered by the mutineers who remained with him, and then killed by the Tahitians. All in all, a pretty bad day.
This Day in History in 1951, Mark Hamill was born.
Mark Hamill was born in Oakland, California and raised as a spoilt brat on Tatooine, whose only job was to fix the generators.
And he couldn't even do that.
Instead, he abandoned his family in a time of need to search for some droids. This led directly to his Aunt and Uncle being horribly murdered by Klingons. Nice going, Mark.
His parents were Anakin Skywalker, who became terribly misunderstood as an adult, and Padmé Amidala, who liked to groom 10-year-old boys.
Of course, Mark Hamill went on to be a successful actor with a leading role in Star Wars as Luke Snogged-His-Sister Skywalker.
