Indiana Lane and the Mystik Temple That's Thinking About Changing Its Name

Sixty-three years ago today, George Lucas was born. Thanks to him, we have more Daria/Star Wars crossovers than you can shake a lightsabre at. Thanks, man! And we can stop with the crossovers, there are enough now, please.

This is also, more or less, the 743rd birthday of celebrated medieval computer-game designer Dante Alighieri, whose greatest creation was Daria's Inferno, based on some other work Dante wrote a few years earlier that no one remembers now. u R0k, d0oD!

Also today in history, Israel was founded, Skylab was launched, and Jamestown settled. Go look it up.
