Birthday History Game

This is just for fun. There's this TV show called Sense 8 on netflix which has 8 characters who are psychically linked. They can talk to each other no matter where they are, feel what the other characters are feeling, "visit" each other and see what the other characters see, or even temporary take over the other characters bodies to help them. All of them were born on the same day (and same year).

So, imagine you were in some sort of perilous situation and you could choose 7 people from history who were born on the same day as you (not same year) to have that sort of psychic connection with. Who would you choose? (Remember, you're stuck with them the rest of your life. Oh, but you get to visit their time period too...so that's a plus.).

You can find people born on your birthday here:

Famous People's Birthday

or here...
