I know what a paradox is, but this thing is called the BIRTHDAY PARADOX. Don't take it out on me, I didn't name it! hahah

Well its not even illogical at all to be honest. What people usually think of is comparing people 1vs1 at a time, when really it should be everyone with everyone else at the same time, which makes the chances get really likely really quickly as more people are in the room.

Plenty of us don't have birthday brothers too in this thread.
I did know a guy who shared one with me though irl. He thought I was fucking with him.

my birthday is on 15th of january. so i am going to turn 21 soon, and hopefully i will be a little bit more sucessful in the coming year.

Let's do it. Post your birthday here and see who shares your date! Once 23 or 24 people have posted, there will be a 50/50 chance that two of us have the same birthdate!

how does the math work? i am never good at maths and my knowledge on maths is only limited to junior secondary school level.

Actually as mentioned before, Luis' birthday is on the 19th, along with a couple other Newgrounders.

Wow, I bet you can exploit that fact.

Go to a place which gives you a service for free if it's your birthday.
May 17th....

"Hello there"
"I'd like such-and-so"
"Show me your birth certificate"
"Here you go"
"It's your birthday! Here you go, on the house"
"Why thank you!"
"No problem"

May 18th...

"Hello there"
"I'd like such-and-so"
"You again? Pay up"
"Wait right there mister" <show second certificate>
"Wha-!?"
"You're not being deceived"
"*grumble* here you go *grumble*"
<Leave>

it should be at least a pair of people that have the same birthday. no wonder. thought you were shitting me. sorry about that.

Edit 05/07/1994.

OK so after scrolling, I've only seen like 3 or 4 people who's birthday is in May.
But not an exact date. :( Closest was the 15th I think.
