Surprise! Today is the tenth anniversary of
The Notebook, the Nicholas Sparks book turned film phenomenon that made Ryan Gosling A Thing, inspired countless wedding photos, and made us all wish we were better at letter-writing.

Take it now and discover once and for all: Are you a bird? (Because Vulture is, and always has been, a bird.)
