Universal Birthdates for Children:
"What this all comes down to is that Thoroughbreds race at a fairly young age and they don't get to feel special on their birthdays. Imagine doing that to a child. Little Billy sharing his special day with three or four million other Little Billy's. Plus, how would you handle the invitations? Little Billy #1 couldn't attend Little Billy #2's party since he had to host one at his house. Little Suzy couldn't come either because she needed to welcome the no-shows at her own gala event. The only presents would come from relatives, which meant that everyone got socks, school supplies and pants that didn't fit. A whole generation would grow up unable to grasp the subtle nuances of self-gratification, external validation, conceit, avarice, jealousy and selfishness. Sulking would still be an issue, but then you get to eat a whole chocolate cake by yourself. How bad can that be?"
