January 20, 1992: It was a pretty good day, we hear. How do we know this? Ice Cube reportedly wrote a song about it. Slate reports on a guy who used deductive power to figure out what day was probably Ice Cube’s good day. Though holes have been poked in the theory (the difficulty of getting “Ice Cube’s A Pimp” on a Goodyear aside), he’s won us over. He didn’t even have to use his AK.
