  •  I wonder if he's Kurdish? (11+ / 0-)

    Most Kurds over the age of 40 or so, at least in Iraq, use July 1 as a birthday because mostly people didn't bother to record the month or day but tended to remember the year.   In the old days, a kid went to school when s/he could reach his/her arm over the top of the head and touch the other ear - little tiny kids have got great big heads and little arms, and by the time your arm was long enough to reach over and touch your ear, you were old enough to go to school.
