Super Mario Bros. for the NES was released on my birthday in Japan. SMB actually existed before I did, so it's better to say I was born on its release date.

My birthday is January 24. Speaking of WWII, the Korsun-Shevchenkovsky offensive started in 1944 on my birthday. I don't really know what it is because I just looked it up on a random timeline :-P. More coming up when I feel like adding them, although my birthday is kind of boring. It has a lot of stuff I don't even know about.

No, I don't think that they made something up. I meant that it's a weird coincedence, which is..... interesting.

Well, it WAS interesting, but it was common in this wide world.
Anyway, there are 3 people that have the same birthday. And they are not twins.

I was born December 2nd 1990. These events transpired on my exact date of birth:

1990 1st parlimentary election in newly reunified Germany
1990 1st time 12 people in space
1990 79th Davis Cup: USA beats Australia in St. Petersburg (3-2)
1990 Beth Daniel/Davis Love wins LPGA J C Penney Golf Classic
1990 U.S. 69th manned space mission STS-35 (Columbia 11) launches into orbit


The rest are ones I found interesting to copy here:

1961 Fidel Castro declares he's a Marxist, and will lead Cuba to Communism
1957 1st U.S. large scale nuclear power plant opens (Shippingport Penn)
1954 U.S. Senate censures Joe McCarthy, Senator-R-Wisconsin, for "conduct that tends to bring Senate into dishonor and disrepute"
1927 1st Model A Fords sold, for $385
1823 President James Monroe declares his "Monroe Doctrine"
1805 Napoleon defeats Russians and Austrians at Austerlitz
1804 Napoleon Bonaparte crowned emperor of France in Paris by Pope Pius VII

And, of course, Britney Spears is also a December 2nd birth. Ugh. ):

I kind of feel bad for you. My birthday is one day before "the day which will live in infamy"-Pearl Harbor Day! And... well, it's really kind of cool to have a day that will be never forgotten in the Americans' minds as the day after your birthday...
