Holy crap, a lot of Presidents were born in October

The important question is what was going on in the January, February part of the year that got all those Presidential parents so darned randy. Deep reflection aside, it's time for useless trivia:

James Earl Carter, Jr.: He signed a law into effect making it legal for a household to brew 100 gallons of beer for personal use.

Rutherford Birchard Hayes: During the Hayes Administration, Alexander Graham Bell installed the first White House phone. They wouldn't use said phone to call the local beer distributor, though. His First Lady "Lemonade Lucy" Webb Hayes refused to serve a drop of alcohol during the Hayes years.

Chester Alan Arthur: He spent most of his nights as President out partying. I imagine when he got the call that President Garfield had been shot, and he'd have to take over the Oval Office, he was at the time lying in a pool of his own vomit. Also, I hope they used that Graham Bell phone to notify him.

Dwight David Eisenhower: Unlike most people who go on vacations to improve their health, Eisenhower suffered two heart attacks while in office, both while on vacation.

Theodore Roosevelt: He lost sight in one eye during a White House boxing match. In contrast, he had a photographic memory. He apparently couldn't remember he was in a boxing match, and forgot to duck. Ha ha, I'm hilarious.

John Adams: He apparently lived his life to piss people off. Not only was he hated my pretty much everyone he met, including best friend Thomas Jefferson, he lived longer than any President, 90 years, 247 days. So basically he was that guy at the party everyone dispised, who simply would not go away.
