Who shares your birthday?

    old_tony's thread inspired me to go look up who shares mine, and the list, of course, was a pleasingly random assortment. So I was wondering (and I hope this hasn't been done before): who are three random people that share your birthday? No real goal here, just a good mix from the list. I think my favorite combination from my birthday would be Lawrence Phillips, George Carlin and Florence Nightingale.

    On another birthday-sharing note, I also discovered that I share my birthday with not one, but two of the Usual Suspects (Stephen Baldwin and Gabriel Byrne). Random that two actors in such a memorable movie would share a birthday. I don't know about Byrne, but that's probably Baldwin's most recognizable work (unless, like me, you're a Bio-Dome enthusiast).

    I'll add a few more: Tony Hawk, Yogi Berra, Burt Bacharach, Jason Biggs, Katharine Hepburn, Tom Snyder, Emilio Estevez, Steve Finley, Otto Frank (father of Anne), Ving Rhames, Paul Begala, Billy Squier, Steve Winwood and Sweet Lou Whitaker.

    Went back and looked to see if I shared my exact birthday with anyone. The only one was Lorena Bernal, who I had not heard of, but let's just say I was impressed.

    Also saw some younger ones, including Malcolm David Kelley, whose name rang a bell, but I wasn't sure why. Then it hit me after I remembered that I'm a Lost dork: WAAAAAALT!
     
  12. Mariah Carey and my paternal grandmother are the only ones of note.

    That said, on the day I was born, the biggest earthquake to ever hit the United States shook Fairbanks, Alaska.

    I shook the world.
