Congratulations, Serr8d!

You said the majickal woids! "Happy 47th Birthday." The clues were as follows:

0 - Speaking of Asian military juntas, S. Korea had one of those. It took power on the day I was born. The leader General President Park was assassinated the week I graduated from Air Force Basic Training with orders for Korean Language School.

1. Chusingura is the story of 47 loyal retainers who avenge their master. Spoiler: They all die in the end.

2. T-47 Snow-Speeder.

3. Shuttle mission STS-47 by Shuttle Endeavor.

4. BB-47 USS Washington was never finished.

5. Forty-seven Ginger-headed Sailors sounds like a snappy tune.

6. CV-47 USS Phillipine Sea

7. The T-47 was also called the T17E1.

8. New Mexico was the 47th state admitted to the Union, right before Arizona.

9. The X-47 is a UCAV.

10. The B-47 Stratojet (these are starting to get more obvious).

11. The AK-47 is the preferred weapon of the enemy. It makes a distinctive sound when fired. -- Gunny Highway (Heartbreak Ridge)

12. CH-47 Chinook is the second of three helicopter types I've flown on.

13. This post is mysteriously blank. It was supposed to be a C-47 Skytrain. I had not been drinking that early in the day.

14. P-47 Thunderbolt

15. "Forty-seven" in Chinese.

16. "Happy Birthday" in Korean. Marcus at Just Barking Mad picked up on that.

17. Happy (Gilmore) + Berth + (Doris) Day

18. Birthday cake ordered by my coworkers back when I was gainfully employed.

19. "Happy Birthday" in Japanese.

20. "Happy Birthday" in Russian.

21. "Forty-seven" in Roman numerals.

22. My 36th Birthday was right before I shipped off to Survival School, hence all the gummi bugs and worms.

23. "Happy Birthday" in Spanish.

    Not bad for someone who's 49, eh?

    Just get you one of these. And maybe a bullwhip or something.

    Let's just say that I am somewhat familiar with Korea.
