Yes, I did note yesterday's date in history.

But some things are too melancholy to post about. May 29th was the 554th anniversary of the Fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks after a two month siege.

May 29, 1453 was also a Tuesday, which is why Tuesday is still considered the unluckiest day of the week in much of the Greek-speaking world.

Constantine XI, rest in peace.
