Search the month and day your birthday is on, and see what famous/interesting people you share your birthday with.

I got Louis Braille, Jacob Grimm, Harmony Korine, Julian Sands, Sir Issac Newton, Lionel Newman, Rick Stien, Tina Knowles (Beyonce's Mum), Andy Borowitz (Creator of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air), Peter Steele from Type O Negative, Cait O'Riordian from The Pogues, Japanese pop artist Yoshitomo Nara, Michael Stipe from REM, Hitomi Obara (Japanese Wrestler).

I think that's a very interesting crowd to share a birthday with. What ones did you get?

I share a birthday with Daniel Day-Lewis. And...yeah, that's it for people I like.

Oh, and Jerry Seinfeld too.

That's another thing I saw.

Google the day you were born, find the first wikipedia article with someone who died on that date.

Meet yourself from a past life! :D

All hail
Births (not in and particular order):
  • Tiberius Claudius Caesar Britannicus (Nero's step-brother. I just included him cause his name is awesome and he's the first on the list)
  • Cotton Mather
  • Alice Roosevelt Longworth (Eldest daughter Theodore Roosevelt)
  • Abe Lincoln
  • Charles Darwin (born the exact same day as Lincoln)
  • Josh Brolin
  • Tara Strong
  • Scott Menville
  • Louisa Adams (John Quincy Adams' wife)
  • Francis II (the last Holy Roman Emperor)
  • And a porn actress named Lolly Badcock (as far as I can tell that's not a stage name).

So... uh, some great people there.

As for interesting deaths (again, no particular order):
  • Charles Schulz (the guy who wrote Peanuts)
  • The guy who established J.C. Penny's
  • Anna Anderson (the woman who claimed to be Anastasia Romanov)
  • Immanuel Kant (a philosopher)
  • Roger Patterson (the bassist for a death metal band, only interesting because it was the same day I was born)

Famous deaths (spans multiple years, of course):

  • Farrah Fawcett
  • Michael Jackson

[up] I never said that. The ones I listed are the ones I DO care about or am interested in. I couldn't say that about George Orwell, anyway. I happened to enjoy Animal Farm when I read it.
I'll stand and fight until the day they put me in the ground.
People I've heard of born on my birthday:

  • Josef Mengele
  • Alan Tudyk

That's all I recognise, really.

I can't find any deaths of people I recognise on my birthday. But, the episode of Doctor Who that Adric died in aired on the day (exactly ten years before I was born, acually). So that could count? I guess?
