Oh but that doesn't mean we should all add our DoB to our UIDs now.
Remember that your DoB is actually secret and only your credit card
company is meant to know it. You know, to verify the person speaking on

(Hmm, they also asked for my account number, which I suppose is also

like everyone ever involved with a wire between them and me, know the
account number. I suppose this is getting old...)
