October 30th

1864: Helena, Montana is founded after four prospectors discover gold there, but not enough to buy a train ticket out of town.

1960: Michael Woodruff performs the first successful kidney transplant in the United Kingdom… but the patient later dies of tooth decay.

1991: The Madrid Conference for Middle East peace opens. Like all such talks, everyone just agrees to blame to Jews and then they break for lunch.
