Today is the day in 1930 when 3M began marketing scotch tape, the day in 1990 when the first McDonald's opened in Moscow and the day when writer Norman Mailer (1923) and Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova (1881) were born and gunpowder conspiracist Guy Fawkes (1606) died. His life was the inspiration, in part, for the movie V for Vendetta.
