OKAY, that is information overload. I didn’t know that when MEN first walk in the MOON, it was the same day with July 21. Historical indeed.
I also tried my luck in PokeMyBirthday.com and here’s what I got:
- On 14.September.1984, Friday, your father has produced the semen that will be half of you soon.
- If your mother is an intelligent women, she would have suspected that she is pregnant at 29.October.1984, Monday. She is not very sure yet but she is suspicious. We hope she was excited and joyed, not worried. (Fast Fact: OCTOBER 29 is my Mom’s birthday).
- Your parents could have lawfully got an abortion until 20.January.1985, Sunday so this is also an important day of your life. Today they decided you should live!
