    Happy Birthday, Dan! Don't get too drunk! :)

    As most of you probably know already, Dan is my little brother who lives and goes to school down in Aiken, SC. Although his birthday isn't listed because he likely never listed it in his profile, I've always remembered this day because of the Challenger explosion.

    I know that's not the best way to remember a Bro's birthday but I try to look at it as something great coming from something terrible. (even though they weren't the same years).

    Enjoy, Dan!

    So... Does it suck to live in a town with the same name as the dorkiest American Idol? It would be like living in Clinton, IA...


    Merry Birthday Dan....

    Have a great year!

    I royally screwed up! I started thinking about the Challenger explosion after I posted this thread and it got me thinking. Then the more I thought about it I started to think I had the date wrong (not of the Challenger, but the way I remembered it). I believe I always remembered it because it was exactly one month AFTER Challenger. I couldn't confirm this morning because it was too early. I just got off the phone with my sis, and as I suspected his birthday is actually February the 28th!

    So, sorry to those who posted and sorry to Dan for having your birthday wrong! Enjoy the early wishes! :)

    :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: WRITE IT DOWN, PUTZ! :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    BTW, what is forever ingrained in my mind (beside the visual) about that day is a short radio transmission some 70 seconds into flight as I recall.

    Mission Control: “Challenger, you are go for throttle-up”.
    Challenger: “Roger, go for throttle-up”

    Would this be considered a Premature Congratulation?
