Mom, Dad & Baby all have same birthday!

I thought this was pretty cool, I never met anyone with the same birthday as me!

What are the odds? They must have a busy house when they all have birthday parties on the same day.

Geek Alert!

The article says the odds are one in 133K. But I think that's wrong. That's the chance that the baby would have the same b-day as one parent (365 x 365). Then there's the odds that the parents have the same birthday. I believe the odds should be one in 48M (365 x 365 x 365).

[pedant alert] They don't have the same birthday, they have the same birthdate [/pedant alert] They would all be exactly the same age otherwise.

Less interesting is my dad is exactly the same age (to the HALF HOUR) as my ex colleague's dad, and they are both non-identical twins. She is also some 13 years older than me.

Ummm...actually the opposite Hugh...

Birthday is the anniversary of the day of a person's birth.

Birth date is the specific date including the year.

Do we sing Happy Birthdate to You?

I was clearly drunk when I wrote that.
