Just a fun question:

 

What significant events happend on your brithday?

 

For example:

 

Walt Disney was born on the same day I was, only 64 years earlier.

 

Mozart died on the day I was born, only 174 years earlier.

 

In 1933, the 21st amendment to the US Constitution was repealed, making it legal, again, to partake of the one real vice I have left... Drink BEER!

(If you call drinking beer a vice! )

 

The T.V. show "Dragnet" debuted in 1951

 

In 1560, Charles IX becomes King of France on the death of Francis II.

The most significant event that occurred on my birthday (or any other day for that matter) was my birth.

 

This is just a little conceited.

 

Here's a couple links where you can just put in your birthday (or any day for that matter) and it will give you such events.

Perhaps I showed some conceit but that is nothing compared to the shame you present with this tidbit. Bob Barker is the single most anti-fur person on the face of the earth ... worse than that Newkirk b*tch because he is very popular with the ladies (well some, anyway) and has a bully pulpit at his disposal.

 

I realize that the coincidence is not your fault and no one should hold this against you personally.

Honestly, I was just giving you a hard time. I got a chuckle out of your post. As for Bob Barker, I hadn't even thought about all that stuff when I found that. I got a kick out of it.

I know you were giving me "a hard time," that is what men are supposed to do. Don't you agree?

 

I was, however, serious about Bob Woofwoof. I despise the man. There are only a few people about whom I feel that way.

Indeed!

I don't blame you here. Although I wonder how much of what he does is for the media. Afterall, he's such an iconical person. But anyone who supports PETA is an enemy in my book.
