Given the Birthday Paradox, I'm impressed that we got this far through this thread and nobody said mine yet:

Remember - the birthday paradox doesn't say that there is a good chance that someone will necessarily have your birthday in a group. Just that there is a good chance that some pair of people will share a birthday. That happened several times in here. Actually, we are way ahead of the calculated odds of the birthday paradox. This is an effect I predicted when I first started this thread - people who see that their birthday has been posted are much more likely to actually post (there have been lots of views of this thread without posting), so we would actually see many more matches than predicted by the mathematics behind it.

Incidentally, I can't believe this thread is still going. Usually my threads die in one or two posts!

Also, people seeing the birthday of their spouse/brother/sister/kids/mother/father posted would also respond, increasing the number of matches even more.

BTW, someone mentioned September 11, which is also my younger brother's birthday.

...and July 4th is my younger brother's birthday.
