Today, I was talking to a customer needing IT help. I make small talk about how my birthday is on the same day the Boy Scouts were formed, and I tell the customer I am sure something interesting happened on his birthday. He gets quiet, then gives his birthday. September11th. Cue the long silence. FML

Yes, September 11th -- the day that complete strangers were there for one another. We should be defined not by a tragedy, but what we do in the midst of it.

You need to think fast on your feet working with customer service. There are a million other things you can make up that happened on September 11th that is less depressing.

It's tough to focus on the good when the bad outweighs it by 10-fold. But, Henry Hudson did sail up a river that later was named after him, and found Manhattan.

Most of the stuff that happened on my birthday are little things, like Christopher Columbus wrote a letter or this army arrived at this place during this war (but no battles). The coolest thing I found was the exploding meteor in Russia in 2013. Which reminded me that I saw something similar happen a few days later over my hometown.
