That is awesome work, exactly 50%

It seems incredible to have 4 on the same day. Like spinning 365 number roulette wheel 25 times and getting the same number 4 times. Though thinking of it like that I can see that it could be 50/50 to get 1 repetition in those 25 spins

Of course to have a 100% chance you need at least 367 people - one for each day of the year plus one more.
Still not 100% though.....

Not totally relevant but my girlfriend shares a birthday with her Dad and I share one with my Nephew. I would have thought that would be pretty long odds. My Niece is also only 2 days from my Sister.

I get the logic but still struggle to see that if in reality if you grouped together a number of times 23 people that reality will match the logic used.
Can't we simply prove or disprove this with how many posters it takes to find someone who shares our birthday?

I'll start if anyone wants to join

Well I think the World Cup squad link above proves it in real life quite well

Anyway, 3rd June

For those of you going to the match tomorrow, here's something you can do while you wait for kickoff. (Btw, he mentions my birthday in the video. There has to be something like a .54% chance of that happening)
