Testing The Birthday Paradox!

Pony Joe

Recommended Posts

The Birthday Paradox states that when 23 people's birthdays are compared, the chances of 2 birthdays being identical is 50%! With 57 people, it reaches 99%!


So, I want to try a little experiment. For each post, put your birthday and continue the count. We will see exactly how many posts it takes for us to find a match.


Let's begin!


My birthday is March 22nd, and I will start the count at ONE.

Why must we state our names?




I never said you had to state your names.


EDIT: Crap, I did! I'm sorry, I meant to say "birthday." Honestly. I have no clue what happened.
