    Thanks for the list. Also born on 6/6/6x was my former college roomate, Dave. God bless him and his ability to watch the Lakers, eat mac 'n cheese from a pot held in one hand with a hot pad, listen to whatever wankery, and play air drums with the wooden spoon he stirred the mac 'n cheese with, all at the same time.
