What's the probability of someone being born on a 13th!


Well, mathematically that number would be the same as the rest of the dates in the year, except of course the 29th with February proving a culprit. But how probable would it be that a large group of your friends were born on 13th of a month (any month at that)? To add more complexity, how probable would it be that a vast majority of those (7 to be exact) were born on the same day as you (!!!). Its interesting when they call you up and wish you, to reply back, “Same to you”!

Just another idle thought that popped completely out of the blue while on my way back from office today 🙂 It could be the fatigue. I guess I need some sleep 😀
