I have to say, a lot of the things they list are really eye-rolling:

"1997, Gina G was taken ill during a flight from London to Glasgow when she suffered an allergic reaction to a flu treatment and had to be rushed to hospital."

Yeah, that's necessary to include.

I'll just go with the birthdays of people (or bands) I've actually heard of:
