So I already knew that I shared a birthday with Tempestt Bledsoe (Vanessa from the Cosby Show) and Dom DeLuise (2nd fiddle to Burt Reynolds, looks a lot like Paul Prudhomme) and Francis Scott Key (writer of some silly little song or something), but I just looked up other interesting things about my birthday.
Juliet Capulet's birthday. - You know, you'd think in one of the billion times that I've read that play, I would have noticed, but I never did. And yet its true.
Herman Melville's birthday
Oxygen was discovered - exactly 200 years to the day I was born.
Switzerland was founded
Colorado became the 38th state
MTV premiered - actually, now that I think about it, I actually remember that happening on my 7th birthday... I had just forgotten
Anne Frank's Last Diary Entry - Something else you'd think I'd have noticed at some point.
A Hard Day's Night by the Beatles - Reached #1 exactly 10 years to the day I was born.
Amazing Fantasy #15 - Published by Marvel Comics in 1962... the final issue of a more or less unnotable series. - Thwip!
