Happy Day O' Birth!
one more year and you won't be a teenager anymore (scary, isn't it).

Now to berate you (its technically the 23rd now, hence NOT your b-day)

Nice use of Wikipedia :P
Isn't plagerism, or at least not crediting sources, illegal, or at least, of bad journalism?... :P

Edit (deleted and reposted): And you duoble posted there, dude...
