Starting with birthdays

Today, as is my habit, I went to the Wikipedia and looked up what notable people were born on this day of the year. I have an informal contest going with myself to see how many of the names I recognize.

Most of the names are new to me, but every once in a while something catches my eye, and I end up looking up somebody who has led a fascinating life. Since this is the Wikipedia, starting with birthdays generally leads me to eventually read about some fascinating topic or other. Before you know it, an hour has gone by.

I wonder how many other people regularly go through the Wikipedia birthdays. I am pretty sure that I am far from the only one.
