Happy birthday, Robb!

Post by bryanb » Mon Apr 06, 2020 5:35 pm

I think it's today...at least it was last year. Happy birthday, my friend. These certainly aren't the best of times, but I hope you still found a way to enjoy today. Before we begin another exciting year of generally not acknowledging the good things that you do, I'd like to take a moment to express some appreciation for our illustrious Sysop. Thanks for giving us such an awesome outlet for discussion here on Jolt Country. Thanks for putting up with us all even though some of us -- OK, all of us -- make it difficult from time to time. Thanks for giving the RFTK revival a chance (and no, it's not dead...there will be some new content up before April is over).

Happy birthday, my friend! The reminder popped up on my phone during a meeting and I didn't circle back around. Hope you were able to do some socially-distanced celebrating.

I'm sorry I didn't know about it. Happy birthday.

So let me do some birthday trivia.

Have you ever thought about the poor bastards whose birthday falls on December 25? Either they get gypped on birthday presents or they get gypped on Christmas presents.

So that at least makes your birthday a little better.

Or here's one that'll bake your noodle: When does someone whose birthday is Februasry 29 celebrate it on the other three years? The day before March 1 (February 28) or the day after February 28 (March 1)?

Happy birthday! I would have sent a stripper cake, but I decided against it.

Mighty kind of all of you.

When I was a kid, all the print encyclopedias said that Harry Houdini's birthday was April 6th. Loved it. He was bad-ass even back then. He's never stopped baby! Being a bad-ass.

Then years pass and they invented accurate information. His birthday according to everything now is March 23rd, but if you type in Harry Houdini April 6, you still see some references to it.

I was a little bummed that it "moved" until I realized that the only thing better than sharing a birthday with Harry Houdini is sharing his illusionary one.

You're in good company! For 4/6 I also found Frank Black (from the Pixies), Merle Haggard, Billy Dee Williams, John Ratzenberger, Marilu Henner, Jason Hervey (the older brother from The Wonder Years) and Raphael.
