Yes its a paranoid world. My question though, after reading this thread, 
is of what real use is birth certificate? I asked at the DMV once, 
naturally the response was  a somewhat less than spectacular "proves you 
were born." So the fact that I live and breathe is not proof enough that 
someone gave birth to me? Perhaps it should be called an identity 
certificate instead. Anyone want to join my support group for the 
insanely pedantic.
