  1. Wow, first 2 are some of my favorite actor/actresses, and they have the same birthday, weird. The rest is simply mind opening as well, had no idea about those holidays or DaVinci's birthday either.

  2. I wouldn't call Tax Day a holiday and I am in the camp that thinks that Seth Rogen sounds as though he is being funny but actually isn't.
