Oh, thank you =D
There's still some 11 hours to go until june 1, but then I turn 30. Ack.

To celebrate both turning 30, and starting the new job on monday, I went out for dinner with a couple of friends last night.
I had a huge steak, some really nice wine, and a somewhat redundant desert. After that, we moved on to a calm pub for "a few" drinks.

I WAS going to get some coding done today, but it doesn't look good. Wink

Hmmm, 365 / 6,000,000,000 = 0.000000061.

You've got the formula wrong ... it's 365 days divided amongst 6bn, which when translated into maths speak is 6bn/365 Smiley Which actually makes an interesting recurring decimal figure. But otherwise about 16 million people will likely have that birthday... that is, of course, if it were evenly distributed... which it strangely isn't!

Damn you just beat me to it  Grin
I'd just say 1 out of 365 chance you have the same birthday. Didn't know about that birthday paradox though, interesting

That birthday paradox explains a different problem though, doesn't it? If I understand correctly, it doesn't say that birthdays aren't evenly distributed

Aye, 'tis not really a paradox, it's just an example of people being completely unable to estimate probabilities in their heads.  Smiley

Since you only need about 30ish people to be almost certain of a shared birthday, a community of this size having a shared birthdays isn't that surprising really.

Ah, that birthday paradox is so often misinterpreted, it's not funny.


When you pick 1 random person, there is a chance of 1/365 that he/she shares the same birthday with another random person. Almost perfectly evenly distributed!

The birthday paradox is about a group of N people, and the chance that there is at least 1 pair in all possible pairs, that shares their birthday.

Precisely - so the sinister coincidence that started this diversionary thread was in fact not a sinister coincidence at all, but almost a complete certainty that someone in here was going to have the same birthday as Markus!

Actually, that's not the birthday paradox either. Cheesy

The odds of someone out of a group of 50 people having the same bday as me is 1-(364/365)^49, or about 12%.
The odds of two people out of a group of 50 people having the same bday as each other is about 97%.

The "paradox" lies in people understanding the first one as true (it's fairly simple math), but being suprised of the second one. It's related to the pidgeon hole principle.
No matter how large the group is, the odds of someone having the same bday as me will never be 100%.
But for a group of size 366 or larger, there's always a 100% chance of two or more people having the same birthday.

I assume you are replying to Cas?


As we were saying the same thing:
The odds of two people out of a group of 50 people having the same bday

... is about a group of N people, and the chance that there is at least 1 pair in all possible pairs, that shares their birthday.


Anyway, how's life, at 30?

Just remember, the warranty on your body expires at 30. After that, stuff starts to fail, so give it proper maintenance =)
