Happy Birthday Mark Twain

Samuel Langhorne Clemens, a.k.a. Mark Twain, was born on November 30th, 1835, 176 years ago. He was an American author, mostly noted for his novels, "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" (1876) and its sequel, "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn".
Both books were inspired by Hannibal, Missouri, a town on the Mississippi River, where the author grew up and started his writing voyage in the local newspaper, The Hannibal Journal.
Twain was born during a visit by Halley's Comet and correctly predicted that he would "go out with it". The writer died of a heart attack on April 21st, 1910, in Redding, Connecticut, one day after the comet's closest approach to Earth.
