So, have you found out that someone has the same birthday as you?

Well, I was wondering how many people you know that have the same birthday as you. I'm talking about people whom you've had some sort of interaction with, not just looking up your birthday to see who phamous has your birthday. Reason I ask was today, as this girl was looking at my info, she told me, oh, you have the same birthday as me, I'm just 4 years older. Then she went on to explain why it was a bad birthday. Oh and this other girl that I knew since junior high and ended up going to the same college as her had the same birthday, just 2 years older. And, of course, I can't forget my twin otter brother who has the same birthday as me, though he doesn't post that much anymore. Haven't met anyone with the same birthday and year though, at least not that I know of.

Re: So, have you found out that someone has the same birthday as you?

At a high school reunion, I discovered that one of my classmates shares my birthday. As it turns out, we were born within 30 minutes of each other at the very same hospital.

I suggested that maybe we were switched at birth, but I suppose someone would have noticed that the Chinese girl and the Jewish boy were accidentally swapped..

It would, however, explain why I eat so much Chinese food.

There was a kid in my first grade class that shared my same birthday and year, but nobody since.

I received some customer info at work and someone was listed with the same DOB as mine.

A co worker of mine has the same birthday. but not the same year. March 4th. The thing that was stupid this year was that the boss bought a cake for my birthday but since my co worker wasnt in that day she got her a cake the next day. Why not just wait till that day and get one fucking cake?!

I have 2 friends that are on the same date but different years. I also know a couple of other people with the same date.

Re: So, have you found out that someone has the same birthday as you?

This is kind of a parlor trick. You can play it at a party. (Well, a pretty lame party, anyway...)

In almost any public school classroom (33-38 students), there will be 2 students with the same birthday.

I've heard it called the "birthday paradox," and of course, here is the Wikipedia entry on that.

I know a half dozen folks with the same birthday. None were born the same year, however.

Wonder if there's any leap year babies around Otterville? There's a good chance they don't know someone personally with same birthday.

My cousin has the same day, but different year. I don't think I've come across anyone since that even has the same day.

Re: So, have you found out that someone has the same birthday as you?

Someone I knew casually several years ago asked me how old I was. I've always looked much younger than my age would suggest, so I do get asked that quite a bit. She didn't believe me until I showed her my driver's license. Then she showed me her license, which listed the same birthday. But there was an eleven year difference between mine and hers. She thought I was around her age.

One that I find interesting is two actors, Reiner Schöne and Raynor Scheine were both born January 19th, 1942 (I also giggle at the latter's name because it's so close to "rain or shine"). That just seems like an amazing coincidence.

When I was 16 I met a girl at a party that was born in the same month, on the same day, and in the same year as I. We were so excited about it (and as an early Birthday gift to each other), we went upstairs and in a cloud of pot and river of wine had reproductive relations to celebrate our most happy day.

Are these the rotting stairs that you talked about in the other thread?

Day and date only one person. A girl I met on AOL back in 2000 or so. I haven't talked to her in awhile but she's on my Facebook. We usually send eachother eCards.

Day-wise I share it with Ringo Starr. I think that's it.

Yes a girl I work with. We couldn't be more opposite. That's when I realized astrology was BS

Guy in my HS class has the same birthday as me. Our mothers shared the same room in the hospital too.

Re: So, have you found out that someone has the same birthday as you?

The kid I grew up with had the same birthday as me and we were the same age. We stopped talking around the time we hit middle school.

Later on, I dated a girl with the same birthday as me, but she was 4 years older. I have a weird attraction to Cancers, it seems. I was born on July 9th, and I've dated girls born July 8th, 9th, and my current GF was born on the 11th.
