In Which I Give Clues

As I had mentioned earlier this week, my birthday is coming up in September. I'm not going to tell you when, though.

In an attempt at being both secretive and creative, I'm going to give you a series of clues that you'll need to decipher to figure out what my exact birth date is. The first to correctly guess my date of birth will get something special from me.

Here are your clues:
  1. I was born in the 1980's, in the second year that decade that began on a Tuesday.
  2. The date I was born on is shared with the trial of Galileo in 1633, when he was tried before The Inquisition for teaching that Earth orbits around the Sun.
  3. After my date of birth, only 102 days remain in the calender year.

It won't take a rocket scientist to figure out those clues. I already gave out a large portion of the date by mentioning I was born in September. There wasn't much else I could think of to disguise the year and the date. Have fun figuring it out, though.

This is a short post today, partly because it's the weekend and partly because I'm having a bout of mental constipation right now. I'll be around this weekend, and I might write something more. If not, that means that I've unplugged again and I'll be back on Monday.

I hope you all enjoy your weekend!

September 2nd.

Weird story on how I know that.

Meg said...

were you born in 1985?

Heather said...

Got any special birthday plans?

Forever In School said...

September 20'th?

Meg: You are incorrect about September 2nd, but correct about 1985. Very good! Stay tuned for your prize information.

Heather: I'm working on the day of my birthday, but as of right now, there are no special plans. That I am aware of, at least.

FIS: Correct! Stay tuned for your prize information.

I think I have some form of CRS because between here and where I found my answer I messed the date up.

You are only a year older then me. Weird.

Lola said...

Oh, thank goodness someone already got it. I'm so lazy that I was just going to send you 30 comments to guess the day since I already knew the year. I couldn't possibly do the research, my friend.

So, since I would have hit it eventually, what's my prize?

Thanks to google, I didn't have to actually think about this or work it out in my head. Cause I don't have it in me to do that, let's not kid ourselves.

Sept. 20th makes you a Virgo (but on the Libra cusp). I AM a Libra and therefore love us and I LOOOOVE Virgos!! This explains everything ;-)

Well. My birthday's before yours, and I'm older than you (but still born in the 80s), and I was born on a Sunday, but this year my birthday's on a Friday (which I'm taking off, because it's my birthday dammit). Dweezil Zappa and Jesse James both share my birthday (in different years).

Badass Geek said...

Meg: I guess that is weird.

Lola: Well played. I'll e-mail you your prize.

Lil Sass: You've got it! Us Virgo's are pretty cool. I'll e-mail you your prize, too.

Miss Grace: It'd be cool to see Zappa and Jesse James in the same band together. I'd pay to see that.

Aargh! I'm late, so nothing for me to guess. You'll HAVE to let us know what the prize is.

Badass Geek said...

Scatterbrain: Better luck next time! As far as the prize goes? I might offer it to everyone later on this week.

Sus said...

I am putting on my history cap and going with September 20th, 1985.

A.C. said...

Cool. My birthday is on September 22nd...so I am also a Virgo on the cusp of Libra.

That explains everything.

Badass Geek said...

Sus: Bingo! I'll e-mail you your prize.

AC: It does explain a lot. Us Virgo's are pretty cool shit.
