It's Wednesday 28th January, you have just got your drivers license and you are 18 =)

PearsonTritonRaveshaw January 28 2009 7:17 AM EST

You're able to get your drivers license at the age of sixteen.

{cb2}ShadeSlayer January 28 2009 7:22 AM EST

1 guess per person, and i've been of legal age to drive for awhile.

1. Today, not as in the date.
2. What happened on January 28th?
3. How Old am I?

AdminTal Destra [Forge Of Norn] January 28 2009 7:30 AM EST

happy birthday, you were born, and thirty

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 28 2009 7:40 AM EST

Today's the day my forecast is calling for freezing rain, snow, rain, and sleet.

Happy birthday, and your 21. ;)

Brakke Bres [Ow man] January 28 2009 8:07 AM EST

you're 21, you went for your first legal beer, and today is the day the spaceshuttle blew up in 1986.

{cb2}ShadeSlayer January 28 2009 9:02 AM EST

2 parts are right so far, but not all three, i'm not telling which so you just have to keep guessing.

alisa [The Forgehood] January 28 2009 9:30 AM EST

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 28 2009 3:25 PM EST

On the 28th of January Marvel brought out the next comic in many comic series.
you are also 21 and went for your first legal beer.

(this is such a random guess)

Today is Jan. 28, 2009. Twenty three years ago the space shuttle Challenger blew up, killing its 7 crew members, which happens to also be your birthday so your 23. :)

MentalKat [G6] January 28 2009 5:44 PM EST

Today is your Birthday, on Jan 28th the Challenger blew up, and you are currently 23 years old

{cb2}ShadeSlayer January 28 2009 5:47 PM EST

Kevlar is the Winner, Henk Bres would have won but he guessed twice, and Ganja didn't have everything in one post and posted twice as well.

GM January 28 2009 5:48 PM EST

Okay alright then.

{cb2}ShadeSlayer January 28 2009 5:48 PM EST

ShadeSlayer (Oxcha) 75.110.148.187 kevlar (pack mule service) $1000000 5:48 PM EST

{cb2}ShadeSlayer January 28 2009 5:53 PM EST

I will be sending 100,000 to each participant except for Kevlar, who already got a good payment.

Brakke Bres [Ow man] January 29 2009 4:11 AM EST

A tad unfair to only allow one guess per person, especially when you started giving hints...

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 29 2009 6:09 AM EST

Come on Henk he is giving out 100k just for participating in the contest.
Don't be too harsh on the guy for wanting to give out money!

kevlar January 29 2009 7:17 AM EST

Thanks Shade. This happened a few days before my birthday in 1988 near Las Vegas, NV. Pepcon manufactured ammonium perchlorate a rocket fuel and it blew while I was in typing class, using those old school electric typewriters. Most people thought it was a terrorist event or aircraft collision. The kicker was that the blast blew in my brother's bedroom window and a piece about a foot in circumference lodged 1/2 way into the wall at chest level... 5 minutes after someone just left the room. Now... houses cover that entire area in that video!

Read the 4th post in the contest Henk, it was posted before hints, and only one guess what before that.
