A tie! Congratulations, CheeseDuck and lila: you two, should a fight break out, could take out 31 attacking 5-year-olds each. Good for you! Or, you know, shame on you.

In second place (also a tie): Matty J and Dan (E. – there were two Dans I think). You both could take out 30 each. My own twelve pales in comparison…yet I feel I am the real winner.

And in third place, taking home the bronze of child-kickery: Vexworth with 29. Rest assured, there are at least four people worse than you.

And thank you all for playing! You can keep posting your scores, but the contest is closed.

So! Continuing on with the sort of horrible guilt-inducing fact generator, here’s something that will tell you what people died on the day you were born. As for me:

144,307 People

Dag. It also gives you a list of natural disasters that occurred that day (I thought I was the only one!)

* 1987 Edgecumbe earthquake
* Edmonton Tornado
* Great Storm of 1987 (how awesome is this name?)
* Whittier Narrows earthquake

Whoo! So, what about you guys?

Also, Merry Christmas! (I’ll try to get cheerier closer to the day…this season gets me morbid).

    Huh, 143,476 dead.

    Natural disasters include:
    Great San Salvador Earthquake
    Lake Nyos
    Winisk Flood, 1986

    I don’t know why Lake Nyos happening would be a disaster. I mean, the creation of a lake could be a good thing (unless there used to be a Nyos Valley or something)…

    All quiet for me I’m afraid – I feel quite disappointed in fact!

    Natural disasters in 1976
    * Groundhog Day gale of 1976
    * Hurricane Liza (1976)
    * 1976 Tangshan earthquake

    I have it on good authority from my mother that the summer of 1976 over here was the hottest “evah”, and she struggled lugging me around 😀
