On a whim I decided to use IMDB’s ability to list who was
born/died/married on a given day to look up my birthday.

It turns out that I share a birthday with Hugh Hefner, and that Francois
Rabelais and Wierd Al Yankovic’s parents died on my birthday. (The
former in 1553, the latter in 2004).

Perhaps more worryingly, Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles, Robin
Cook and Gaynor Regan, and Donald and Ivana Trump all decided to get
married on my birthday.
