Two Things

1. Hehe.

2. This site: It uses a database of celebrity birthdays matched up with yours, with a combination of biorhythms (SCIENCE!) to determine which famous people you'd hook up with well. Or something like that. This site provided me with two bits of information worth noting. First, when I ask it for my five best matches based on my birthday, look who comes in at # 4 with a stunning 98% compatibility:

Pretty cool, I'd say. But here's where the system starts to show its faults: When I searched for a particular celebrity to see if they'd match up well with me at all:

I could argue with those meager results (52% frigging percent? That's like "maybe we'd hit it off, and maybe we wouldn't!" Fuck that!) but that would unfortunately mean also arguing with the first set of results...

...and so it looks as though I'll be forced to choose. Sorry, celebrity ladies.

Meanwhile, if you're bored, you can go find out if your favorite famous person would bother crossing the street to piss on you if you were on fire. Just be careful when you look up certain matches: The website uses science (things such as biorhythms), which is often dangerous and/or mean.
