Amazing things about October 7:
» Carbon paper was patented by Ralph Wedgewood in 1806.
» Five years ago, B*Witched were at No.1 with Rollercoaster.
» Frozen food pioneer Clarence Birdseye (yes, really) died on this day in 1956.
» Jane Torvill, the lady out of Torvill and Dean, is 46 today. Toni Braxton, of Unbreak My Heart and exploding breast implants fame, is 35. And we're hoping not-very-cheerful Radiohead bod Thom York will cheer up enough today to blow out 35 candles on his cake.
