Birthdays

Wait for it!....

Was watching an item on TV about a very brave Roman Catholic priest, Hugh O'Flaherty who in Rome saved thousands of lives, Jews allied service men during the 2nd world. As usual I'm a Google nut and started Googling his name to find out more, only to find he passed away on the eve of my birthday 30th October 1963.

Keep waiting!..

This reminded me of the Birthday paradox which states that in a room of 23 people theres a 50/50 chance of 2 people having the same birthday, if there were 75 people it would be a 99.9%

Bear with me!....

So with that I thought which famous people share my birthday so I hit Google again and it turn out a quick look shows (from many :D ) Dick Francis Jockey and writer, Barbara Bel Geddes of Dallas fame, Eddie Charlton snooker player, a certain J Saville, Michael Landon, Mat Dawson, Muzzy Izzet (remember him) and on my actual birthday in 1963 Dunga,the name says it all really.

So at last, the question.

Who do you share a birthday day with and is there anyone "better" than Dunga who you share your actual birthday with?

(well that passed 5 minutes)

Google always does this to me.
