SkullFACE FunFact: On this date 1854 author Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde is born in Dublin Ireland. In 1890 he would publish his story The Picture of Dorian Gray, and then in 1891 he would add six new chapters and publish the complete story as a novel. Critics weren't impressed, and even less so by the homosexual undertones. Whatever. In his time, Wilde lived the good life, had successes, and then he was accused of sodemy and spent time in jail. His fortunes dwindled and he left for Paris never to see Ireland or London again. He died poor and sick at the age of 46. A Wild ride for a guy who embraced the Wilde side of living. Happy 164th birthday.
