October 22nd

362: A mysterious fire destroys the temple of Apollo outside Antioch. The owners are still trying to collect the insurance.

1383: King Fernando dies without a male heir to the Portuguese throne, sparking a period of civil war, disorder, and crappy romantic comedy movies.

1976: Red Dye No. 4 is banned by the US Food and Drug Administration after it is discovered that it causes tumors in the bladders of dogs. The dye is still used in Canada... where no one cares about dogs.
