    According to google, you're 38 and born on 10/18/1966.

    But then google also says you're currently a free agent in Major League Baseball.

    28th December 1963.
    I`m so sad, with nothing to edit, all I have to do is twiddle my thumbs and try to solve this poser.

    Calculations thus.
    15000 divide by 365 = 41.09

    .09 of a year is 35 days.

    hence Dec 28th 1963.

    Tum de tum..................

    You probably used Excel, which ignores leap years, and gives your DOB as 05/02/1964 using the equation "="28/02/2005"-15000+1"
