So Bradley was right? Should I add you to the calendar?

And more pressing: How do you know when you're going to die? ;)

Ha, I remember that at the time I signed up for F-F, I was paranoid about giving out my birthdate, since it can be used as a security question. Given my info has already been leaked by corporations a dozen times by now, it probably no longer matters. But yup, birthday is January 5, and I am now officially 41.

My thinking is I'll kick off right about 82. I could probably live longer if I stopped eating bacon cheeseburgers and pizza and other delicious food, but those years are sucky years where you can't really move about well and generally quality of life is poor. So I figure I'll be much happier enjoying my bacon cheeseburgers now and skipping the old age applesauce. :)

Sorry Teb-- I didn't realize you didn't have your bday on the list when I oh-so-indiscreetly leaked your bday. Perhaps we should put your bday as a couple of days earlier than it really is-- that'll protect your identity and also around here most ppl will actually wish you a on time that way

Oh no worries man, I appreciated the shout out! Like I said, given literally every credit union/bank/large corporation has had it's user data compromised by now, my shit is all over the dark web already. These days you should just assume someone's going to try to steal your identity and set up accordingly (I use Lastpass, 2 factor authentication, etc).

As far as my birthday, that cat's out of the bag, down the street, killing birds and probably peeing on something.
