On this day 18 years ago, I completed my first grand strategic move: being born. Okay, I just needed a way to make "my birthday is today" sound cooler. In order to actually make this a question, is this less important than the Battle of Trafalgar?

Happy b'day (pronounced like bidet).
I know a guy whose first name is Liberty. Recently, his mother, toasting him, said, "One score and ten years ago, I brought forth upon this continent, Liberty..." like she'd been waiting his whole life to say that

Sliding out was your first strategic move?

Well I was born prematurely and via c section.. Ok no, it was a bad joke and a bad reference to a video that was apparently blocked by the BBC on copyright ground

This is your birthday song. It doesn't last too long.

Congrats! I have hopes that there will be far fewer deaths related to this date 18 years ago.

Admiral Nelson's greatest defeat of the French? A little more important to put those frog-eaters in their place.

Battle of trafalgar is pretty important, they named a square after it and also a travel company...
