Happy 30th birthday. Hopefully, by now you are a millionaire and have the submarine you've always dreamed of having. Even if you're not a millionaire, I still hope you're having a happy birthday. Are Mom and Anthony Isaac coming to your party? Oh, Anthony Isaac! That little bundle of joy aka “hiccup” aka your little brother, will now be 17 years old.
