We don't actually know when Vasco da Gama, a famed Portugese explorer (he discovered that the Atlantic and Indian oceans were connected), was born. Reports say 1460 or 1469 but we don't have a month or day. Da Gama also used violence and hostage-taking to control the people of India so maybe Brutus shouldn't be celebrating da Gama's birthday. I don't care how "important" you think he is. Let's be honest, someone would've figured out to "sail around Africa" sooner or later.
Gladys can still fit in her wedding dress? Good for her.
