Hey, everyone. Today's my birthday. *small balloon*

16 is overrated. This birthday is just going to be a normal one.

So, a few months ago, I realized that my birthday is the same as Arnold Schwarzenegger's birthday. Weird, huh?

Post if your birthday is the same as any celebrity, musician, or important person in the world.

This year, school's full of BS!!!

Okay, I did what everyone else did and got a huge list of stuff. But here's a few of the more interesting tidbits:

NOV 24th:

1957 - Denise Crosby is born(actress: Star Trek: The Next Generation, 48 Hrs., Curse of the Pink Panther, Pet Sematary, Red Shoe Diaries 13: Four on the Floor, Deep Impact)

1971 - It was a dark, freezing-cold, rainy Thanksgiving eve when Dan Cooper, now better known as D.B. Cooper, boarded a Northwest Orient airliner in Portland, Oregon. The chain-smoking Cooper, in his mid-forties, wore dark glasses, a dark suit and tie, and white shirt. He carried a black briefcase containing what resembled a bomb, using it to hijack the Boeing 727 plane. Cooper demanded and received $200,000, then parachuted from the plane over the Cascade Mountains in Southwestern Washington, never to be seen again.
Now updating without interruption, starting 2/16.
