I remember having this discussion with my brother years and years ago, he didn't believe it either, so we started looking at baseball teams (every team 25 players on its roster), we went through about 16 teams and 10 or 11 teams already had two players with the same birthday, so we stopped.

RE: Still neck division
I read an article about it, and there was the mathematic proof of this, so I could only believe it

RE: Still neck division
Pretty sure it's about probabilities:
Need to find the percentage of no people have birthdays together (this is continuing to assume that no two people have the same birthday) For 1 person, there is 365/365 For 2 people, I would say 364/365 to keep it simple, although the fraction is much weirder than that due to leap years. 3 people: 364/365 * 363/365 4 people: 364/365 * 363/365 * 362/365 5 people: 364/365 * ... * 361/365 And so on. Even for 10 people: already ~12% chance that 2 people will have the same birthday. (because ~88% chance that they will not have the same birthday) Doowhat? Doodat? Okey:3 1v1  Peak #32 // Current #56 as AlliDooisRush 2v2  w/jesusfuentesh #7 2v2  w/baustin #17 // w/Juslas #85 // Randoms #38
