Wow, I had no idea you were 51 this year. Just goes to show how diverse the LJ group of people in COH are.

Yeah, in a bit under 6 months.

Hm. I'll be in my 'prime' again - 51 being a prime number - so I'd best get to work on that, so my prime is something to look up to.

"51 being a prime number" - 9 is experimental error? :P 53 is prime, 51 is divisible by 3.

Still, it gives me two more years to get ready.

An anti-Communist revolt in Hungary is crushed by Soviet troops and tanks - that was on my birthday.
