The strangest things can happen when you surf-- I was reading the Wikipedia definitions of Generation X (born 1964 to 1976) and the baby boom (1946 to 1964), and read that in Canada, boomers were organizing support for Pierre Trudeau, who on May 7, 1977 did a pirouette behind the back of Queen Elizabeth II.

Here are other things that happened in 1977:

January 6, EMI sacks the Sex Pistols
January 19, snow falls in Miami Florida, the farthest south a snowfall has ever occurred in the US
January 20, Gerald Ford is succeeded by Jimmy Carter
January 21, Jimmy Carter pardons Vietnam draft dodgers
February 11, a 44 lb 9 oz lobster is caught off the coast of Nova Scotia
