Spencer; Sir Edward Ashford and Dr. James Marcus after the discovery of the Progenitor virus the previous year. Another starting member, though not considered a co-founder, was Marcus' student Brandon Bailey, who was with Marcus and Spencer when they first discovered the Stairway of the Sun flower. 3

  15. 15. The Wikipedia article for famous personality X says that he was born august 7 or 8, 1966. When X was quizzed as to what his actual birth date was, he said “I was born on August 7th, 1966, at around 11:30PM... according to my mother, who should know. But somehow, when the doctor prepared my birth certificate, he put August 8th, 1966. Even though my parents signed it, they didn't notice it. We only found out when I was 15 and went on my birthday (the 7th!) to get my driving permit. You can imagine my disappointment when I was sent home. Hence, all X’s legal documents list his date of birth as 8th august. Wikipedia's policies for inclusion of information focuses on verifiability, not truth. Passports, birth certificates, etc. fall into the first category, even if they are not correct. Hence the listing on X’s page. ID the famous business personality X. 7
