It's August 13, maybe you or somebody you know has a birthday -- and so does famed sharpshooter Annie Oakley.
After becoming a crack shot to support her family's hunting, Oakley later beat a circus sharpshooter at his own game and married him. She then toured the country, shooting dimes out of the air, snuffing out candles with one shot, and extinguishing smoking materials while they remained in men's mouths.
So HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one and all, and to Annie Oakley, a badass who would probably scare the crap out of Ted Nugent today.
