On this day ...

Lately I have been refering to Wikipedia more and more, and actually have been enjoying reading some basic history facts everyday from their main page.

This one struck me really funny this morning that on this day in
1774 - Joseph Priestley
discovered OXYGEN. Not only did he discover oxygen in 1774, but he discovered oxygen 2 years after Carl Wilhelm Scheele had discovered oxygen ....

WHY wiki? Why even lead off with Joseph.... hell I'll claim discovering oxygen on this day also.
Much less it is oxygen... funny that it had to be discovered.
