Bono's birthday
« on: November 12, 2008, 05:35:45 PM »
Anybody notice that in that Rolling Stone list, Bono's day of birth is listed as "May 106th, 1960"?

Perhaps there's something Bono's not telling us?  ;)

That's funny!  :D

By the way, I think they should have divided the list into male/female singers. Not that I'm against equality, but I wouldn't put Aretha Franklin on the same list as John Lennon and Elvis.

It's the temporal equivalent of Platform 9 3/4, you have to find May 30th and April 1st, run full tilt at the midnight between them, and if you push hard enough you wake up in your bed on May 106th. Difficult, but possible.

Also, true, you can't really compare male and female singers. And probably not across genre, either. Actually, it's a pretty stupid list, but aren't most of these things? Just there to start debates, really.

And we can debate like nobody's business!  (Sorry, I'm adding nothing of value to the conversation)

At least we don't take taxpayers money and pretend it's money well spent  ;)

Actually, I do. Quite what the American government is doing funding posts on a U2 forum made by a non-American is a mystery, but this is one of those pork-barrel projects McCain wouldn't shut up about.

I'm on a cost-plus contract, in case you were wondering.
