Born today, you don't always do things in the accepted, expected or desired way. More often than not, you will steer clear of those things that require you to "toe the line" or otherwise conform to another's idea of proper behavior. Still, you are able to get along with others without letting rebellion stand in your way. You are not an angry individual, but you enjoy pushing the edge of the envelope, testing the waters and redefining boundaries. You also have a vivid sense of humor, which can help you navigate the difficult episodes in life.
You take your work very seriously, though you may not pursue a career in the strictest sense. You may be able to make quite a life out of what others would call "odd jobs," but this will satisfy your need for change, and give you plenty to look forward to on a daily basis.
Also born on this date are: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, wrestler and actor; Roscoe Lee Browne, actor; Theodore Bikel, actor; Dr. Benjamin Spock, pediatrician and author; Manfred von Richthofen, World War I aviator known as the "Red Baron."
