Iron Man is an Aries. Is anybody surprised by that?

Robert Downey Jr. turns 54 today, April 4th 2019. And for his birthday, he's given us a gift. Aww, how sweet!


Robert Downey Jr. exploded back into fame in 2008 with the release of Iron Man after a lengthy and tumultuous struggle with sobriety that nearly destroyed his career.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been enormously successful and RDJ has become representative of its success, as well as closely linked with his character Tony Stark in real life.

For his birthday, RDJ tweeted a gift for his fans.

But, it turns out the gift he is giving us is a crossword puzzle that is all about himself. Huh.

Of course, most of the people who paved the way to make the world what it is today have long since passed away.

Not all of them, though!

It may surprise you to learn that there are people who made an indelible impression on history who are still much alive today.

Some of whom even continue to make a difference to this very day

We all indulge in fast food from time to time.

Even if we know what we're eating isn't exactly healthy, sometimes the salty, fatty mass-produced food is the only thing we want.

Resulting in our making weekly, if not daily, visits to a nearby chain.

Then, of course, there are the chains that we make every effort to avoid.

We've likely tried places at least once simply because everyone is always talking about them.

But after having one bite, we have trouble seeing exactly what all the fuss was about and vow to never return.

There are several movies I've watched so many times I think the viewings outnumber the days I've lived.

Sexy doesn't always have to equal raunchy.

I've known people turned on by music, books, nature, and even funerals (don't ask).
