OK, here:

1) I was born in East Point, GA. Ludacris was born in the same hood (LOL).

2) The Plain White T's are from Chicago, but I live in Northwest Indiana where they played many shows prior to their rising popularity. We played the same venue many times, where I told the owner (as they played): "they'll never make it."

3) Jeff Samardzija, who now pitches for the Chicago Cubs, graduated with me from the same high school. I heard he was a dick, but he worked hard and I cheer for him despite my hatred of the Cubs.

Also, Dimebag is Buried not too far from where I live, and apparently Vinnie Paul sometimes comes into the guitar center I visit. It's a running joke at that store that Vinnie Paul is slowly loosing his understanding of the english language, and that he now speaks his own language, in which 90% of the english words are translated as "HELL YEAH!"

Hehe. I live in the capital city of my country and about 1/3 of the general population lives here so I could make a huge list of which famous people were born(and lived) here but I'd doubt that you'd know any of them.

And yes, there are world renown people from Estonia. You all are just probably not very interested in those aspects of life, however(I think).

My mother was lucky enough to visit Estonia. She brought me back some beautiful items and I want to visit so badly My favorite is a Madonna and Child icon, which is common there, but here it is not. I have it next to my bed and I always look at it with awe (it's very beautiful).
