In 1876, in the year that Paul P Amelang was born, on November 2nd, a giant squid - a little over 20 feet long - washed up on a beach at Thimble Tickle Bay in Newfoundland. It's still a rare occurrence since giant squid live in deep sea at 1000 to 3000 foot depth.

In 1885, by the time he was only 9 years old, Germany's Karl Benz built the Benz Patent-Motorwagen, which had an internal combustion engine. It is considered to be the world's first automobile. The Benz cost $150 - just under $4,000 in today's money.

Governors are still able to appoint senators to vacant seats until an election can be held.

In 1923, he was 47 years old when on September 1, an earthquake - the Great Kanto earthquake - destroyed one-third of Tokyo.
