Did you know that...

in 1899, a book called "How to cook husbands" was published?
in Anglesey, Wales, there is a Jedi church with over 400000 members?
Charles Darwin was considered a "disgrace" by his teachers?
the Bald Eagle ain't bald at all?
all English males over the age 14 are to carry out 2 or so hours of longbow practice a week supervised by the local clergy?
it is Morgoth's birthday today?
Sigmun Freud was horribly afraid of the number "62"?


I hoped you have enjoyed this trivia.

A lot of people after that have considered him a disgrace or something along the same lines

Seems like that particular trivia was a combination of two facts:
In 2007 brothers Barney Jones and Daniel Jones set up a 30-member Jedi church in Holyhead, Anglesey, based on improving life using the Jedi principles.
And
In England and Wales 390,127 people (0.7 percent) stated their religion as Jedi on their 2001 Census forms, surpassing Sikhism, Judaism, and Buddhism, and making it the fourth largest reported religion in the country.
Should you ever need the info in future.

Dude's my sister's age! I can't believe this, EVERYONE's younger than me. But they still asked for my ID at the off-licence, so I must look young. OH GOD I WISH I WERE DORIAN GRAY

I train in the other weapon that is glorified and exhalted as another proud arm from the shores of Albion; the billhook.

Anyway; 'tis a sad day when one has to make thier own birthday thread, I for example - got praise in thread format from Sonic Shadow. But I blame the lack of recognition for you Morgoth is the death of the Birthday thread, not that the fact we're all secretly plotting your demise.

Anyway, happy birthday and enjoy your birthday celebrations (or whatever you do in Estonia).
But they still asked for my ID at the off-licence, so I must look young.
Don't shave for a while, I've seen it work on occasions.

Though they have to ask you ID, for the shop keeper would be given a large fine if they were caught selling to little kiddies. But what's the hassle? All you have to do is get your driving licence from your pocket and show the guy.

No, I regarded it as positive that they asked me. You know this one time they even asked in the grocery store when I bought one can of beer. I'm flattered when people ask for my ID. I don't want to look like I'm 20, why can't I be 17 forever? Daaaamn. The picture on my ID is me at the age of 15
And if I were working at the counter I'd ask PARTICULARLY those who have this weak 'I'm-trying' facial hair. I don't know how people think that's any help? Unless you've got a REAL beard or something.

That's true, so don't go for the half moustache where only the sides are visible . The general unshaven stubble usually works quite well; that or a full-grown goatee or beard.
it is Morgoth's birthday today?
Tell him I said happy birthday .

Aww man, don't bring down the good so's and undies! I NEED THEM

EDIT: Oh, and nobody remembered MY birthday but I had the good sense to not make a thread about it and cry alone with 'This truly has been a day with frustrated expectations' on my lips as I fell asleep.

Crybaby...
oh wait I'm the crybaby... Umm, THREADMAKEBABY!

We should have an AoKH birthday thread. In fact, I'm pretty sure it even exists somewhere.

Yes there are several of them and people make new ones now and then but they sink without exception, if the birthday thread is to stay on the first page it should be stickied because for some reason people don't always have daily interest in talking about birthdays? I think it'd be neat to have a sticky birthday thread.
