Tomorrow is National Bio-Diesel Day! OK, It’s Really Rudolph Diesel’s B-Day

Saturday, March 18 is National Bio-Diesel Day! Who knew? I always considered it St. Joseph’s Day. Anyways, it is the birthday of Rudolph Diesel. The engine guy, not the jeans guy! Mr. Diesel was born March 18, 1858 in Paris, he is listed as having died September 29, 1913, “in the English Channel” under suspicious circumstances, likely suicide. This Wikipedia entry includes the theories surrounding his death.
