My birthday was on Saturday. I was born on October 20th 1946. I am 66 years old. I don’t know them but Tom Petty and Snoop Dog both have the same birthday as me. Different years of course, Tom Petty is only 62 years old and Snoop just celebrated his 40th birthday. They say that Snoop Dog is the most famous person with an October 20th birthday.
The website www.famousbirthdays.com not only lists the birthdays of famous people but ranks them in order of who is the most popular. According to the website James Chadwick (Nobel laureate for physics for the discovery of the neutron) is the least popular of the famous people born on October 20th. Mickey Mantle is the third most popular. Either the importance of your work has little to do with popularity or maybe the difficulty of your work has little to do with popularity. I never heard of James Chadwick till this morning when I visited the website. I am sure Chadwick slaved away for years studying and researching before making his discovery. Mickey Mantle, on the other hand, was outside playing ball and drinking beers after the game. Doesn’t seem fair.
I also share my birthday with Dr. Joyce Brothers, Art Buckwald, Jelly Roll Morton, Jerry Orbach and Keith Hernandez. Even though we were all born under the same astrological libra sign I can’t say that I feel any kinship with any of these folks.
A famous name is a kin to a brand name. Popular brand names like French’s Mustard do not necessarily mean it is the best mustard. Although I have to say that when it comes to a hot dog you can keep your Grey Poupon or Gulden’s Spicy Brown and give me French’s. A corndog would hardly be recognizable without French’s.
I like to think that 2 Way Radio Express is both a famous name and the most appropriate name when it comes to 2 way radios. We want to help you find the best two way radios for your application. Give us a call. Doing business with 2 Way Radio Express is easy.
