Party Like It's 1981

Continuing my birthday theme for today, I wanted to take a second and see what events and facts I could find on the year I was born, 1981. In case you're wondering I was indeed a child of the eighties in which I rocked the mullet and MC Hammer parachute pants.

  • France abolishes capital punishment.
  • Sandra Day O'Connor takes a seat as the first female justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.
  • The Boeing 767 takes its first flight.
  • MTV is launched.
  • Major League Baseball goes on strike.
  • U.S. President Ronald Reagan is shot in the chest in Washington D.C. by John Hinckley.
  • Eli Manning, Mike Jones, Justin Timberlake, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Hudson and Britney Spears were born.
