Christopher Reeve is Still Dead

No Google. It is not Christopher Reeves’ 69th birthday because he stopped having birthdays when he was 52. You know. Because, he died when he was 52.

Birthdays are celebrated by the living for the living. If you have a 16th birthday it is because you’ve lived that long. If you died when you were 5, you can’t possibly have a 16th birthday.

It is pretty simple really. I don’t know why we keep mis-using and mis-representing birthdays on Google.

It is ok to say “It *would have been* Christopher Reeve’s 69th birthday today.

On October 10, 2021, we can celebrate his death day.


This is the first time that I can remember that I don’t recognize any of the names on the famous birthdays page of the newspaper.

Steve Irwin

The following isn’t true. It is not Steve Irwin’s 57th birthday because he only ever made it to 44.

Wrong Again Google

I appreciate the sentiment but it would be more accurate of them to say Today would have been Steve’s 57th birthday. That is factually accurate.

I do miss him. He was a one of a kind awesome guy who should have gotten a longer ride on the life train.

Mary G. Ross is Dead

Sorry Google.

It is really NOT her birthday. She is DEAD. She stopped having birthdays in 2008. It isn’t even her DEATH day.

Wrong on both counts.

Happy Birthday Aaron!

Just like to say for the record that I remember holding this guy as a baby when I was 13 years old.

Pretty sure he would have no problems holding me at this point.

Happy Birthday baby brother!
