We've got a lot of geeks on this site, and we've got a wide variety of ages. I wonder how many consecutive months in a row a geek was born?

If you want to join in on this what can be loosely called fun, post your the year and month of your birth on this geeklist (assuming the month/year combination is not already taken). Also post something interesting that happened that month.

The more people who add, the neater it will look.

Claim your month and year before someone else does!
Posting gets you a shiny geekpenny

Please make your month/year big and bold.

So far:
Youngest: June 1998
Oldest: March 1946
Years missing: '48,'50,'54,'58,'89-'96
Most Consecutive Months: 9 (70-71)

This is going well holes are filling in, giving us longer and longer streaks.

February 1975

These events occurred on my birthday (sourced from Wikipedia):

Watergate scandal: Former U.S. Attorney General John N. Mitchell, former Chief of Staff H. R. Haldeman and, former presidential adviser John Ehrlichman were each sentenced to a minimum of 2 1/2 years, and up to 8 years, in prison by U.S. District Judge John J. Sirica. All three had been convicted in January of obstruction of justice charges in connection with the Watergate scandal. Mitchell joked with reporters about his famous wife, from whom he was separated, saying, "It could have been a hell of a lot worse. He could have sentenced me to spend the rest of my life with Martha Mitchell." [40]

Born: Affirmed, American thoroughbred racehorse and the last horse to have won the American "triple crown" of horse racing; near Ocala, Florida (d. 2001)

Died: Joseph Lortz, 87, German Roman Catholic theologian and Nazi sympathizer
