It's Memory time

Today I bring you a little something from my treasuries. A photograph of The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. The pic is taken like 1990 and is totally copyrighted by yours truly, Uncle Sammy. (Picture taken with some cheap ass instamatic for around $30.)
You see? You see? At Superblog!! we are productive artists and aren't just living from other peoples stuff, but let's do that too. Today we remember veterans and the man born exactly 424 years ago in 1581, Bishop James Ussher, Archbishop of Armagh. He sure made some serious accomplishments!

While Archbishop of Armagh, Ussher became determined to approximate when the universe was created. He traveled to Britain and Europe in 1640 trying to seek the earliest available manuscripts he could find. He decided to use the Book of Genesis to determine when he thought the universe was created. After counting the “begats” of the Book of Genesis, Ussher came to the conclusion that the universe was created at 9:00 am on the twenty-third of October, 4004 BC. This date was in fact used in some editions of the King James Version of the Bible.

Superblog!! It's fun and you learn stuff!
