May 10 The National Gallery London

What happened on May 10?

The National Gallery in London opened its doors on this day in 1824 and in case you haven’t set foot in it yet, go for it!
It holds one of the most incredible collections in the world. In case you haven’t made any plans yet to visit London any time soon, you shall now consider it.

One thing you most likely won’t find in this year’s exhibitions is a picture of The Hulk, whose first comics was released in 1962.
Do you reckon this will make him mad and turn green? A classic Hulk move… turning yourself into a green giant whenever things aren’t going your way.

Bono (*1960) certainly doesn’t need to turn into a green monster to get people’s attention, does he? A microphone is enough to stop whatever you’re doing and listen in awe.

Ideally, throw in a little dance by Fred Astaire (*1899) and Carl Douglas‘ (*1942) fabulous Kung-Fu-Fighting voice and you’ll have yourself a proper party!

Maybe even grander than the party that was thrown by Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette in 1774, when they were crowned King and Queen of France.

And remember: do not drink and drive whilst/after partying, kids.
Even in case you drive a state-of-the-art Audi, it’s not the right thing to do. Yes, Audi’s predecessor, Horch Motorwagenwerke, was founded in Germany on this day in 1904.

One year later, Slovak engineer Aurel Boleslav Stodola (*1859) published his masterwork dedicated to steam turbines. A true pioneer, born in the Tatra Mountains!
