Speaking of the 50th state, I never thought about something kind of interesting (to me anyway) until a couple years ago. Alaska was admitted to the Union January 3, 1959 and Hawaii was admitted almost 8 months later, August 21, 1959. My sister was born April 30, 1959, so she is part of what I have to assume is a small percentage of people born in the US while there were only 49 states. She was born almost 4 months after Alaska and almost 4 months before Hawaii. I know, I know, this isn't really all that interesting, but I found it kind of interesting.
