February 25th

1952: British Prime Minister Winston Churchill announces that his nation has an atomic bomb. He then eats it.

1979: A Solar Eclipse passes over the Canadian city of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Unfortunately, no one notices because it occurs during a hockey game and a rerun of SCTV.

1991: On Baghdad Radio, Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein announces the withdrawal of Iraqi troops from Kuwait. After that announcement, the radio sadly goes back to playng Milli Vanilli.
