#21815 - 03/09/01 11:38 AM BIRTH ANNIVERSARIES
Anonymous
Unregistered


I recently offered to compile a list of AWADers' birth anniversaries (i've forgotten which member it was that described it this way, but i was so impressed by its accuracy, as compared to "birthday" that i had to repeat it here) for purposes of posting the list on Max' idrive account.

Since my query was within another thread, i suspect many of you may have missed it. If you'd like to be included and haven't already given me your information, send me a PM or just post it here.

it'll also be interesting to see which of us share the same date; paulb and i had a discussion of the 'group of 30' principle, since our birthdays happen to fall just one day apart.

Thanks

~b

PS to jackie: You don't need to send yours, obviously. all of the best to you, on your special day *hug*

Anu HAS no birthday ... because fictitious characters are not born, they are imagined.

I wasn't sure this would interest anyone, but my search proved it was a YART, which suggests that - at least at one point in time - some AWADers found this intriguing:

As was discussed a while back, statistical evidence suggests that in any group of 23 or so people, two will share a birthday.

I've thus far received 32 replies, and amazingly there are *three* sets of shared birthdays: Hyla/Shoshannah, Jackie/TEd (! can you believe we missed this one!?) and Scribbler/of troy.

there is also a noticeable skew towards February-May birthdays (22 of 32, or 69%, which is amazing considering the expectation that any four month interval would likely produce one-third of the bdays). Also, there are no birthdays listed in January or June, and only one each in August, November and December.

BTW, does anyone have a link for free downloadable software that will produce a distribution curve? i'm not very handy with excel, so i'm sure i'm missing something, but the chart i was able to produce by converting the dates to decimal form seemed woefully lacking.

Keep the birthdays coming; it's great entertainment for me (and please, no 'get a life' suggestions )

Bridget

The rate you have got is quite a bit higher than 'expectation'. The chances of two people in 23 sharing a birthday are just over 50%, far from a sure thing. Of course, for a sure thing you will need at least 367 people!

A simple (but tedious?) was to do a distribution 'curve' on Excel would be to simply have 365/366 rows and put a one against them for each person on that day. You could have a separate sheet for these 'tally marks' and then a consolidation sheet that shows, respectively, daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly totals. Then create graphs/charts to your heart's content...

shared birthdays: Hyla/Shoshannah

Downright weird. This is an area of my life where I have experienced a disproportionate share of synchronicity. In college, I twice lived next-door to someone who shared my birthday, and once lived upstairs from one person with my birthday at the same time I was living next door to someone with my birthday. Currently, my next-door neighbor has the same birthday as well. Weird.

It would happen that at AWAD, another important area of my life, there'd be someone with the same birthday.

My daughter's partner's father (you might say, her father-out-law) not only shares a birth anniversary, but the actual birth DAY with me.

Despite having a very German last name (Reiner) and a very Germanic appearance (blond hair, blue eyes, fair skin), my tongue is apparently not German. My greatest achievement in the language was to order 100 grams of cheese in a shop while Eurailing my way out of Germany years ago. So - translation of the above, please?

I really don't know any German dialects, but I have a guess to offer. How many of you have ever seen the original film Die Blaue Engel with Marlene Dietrich? She sang a song in that (also recorded it -- I have it on disc) which went, in part,

Ich bin von Kopf bis Fu
auf Liebe eingestellt,
denn das is meine Welt,
und dann : gar nichts !

I'm in love from head to foot
for that's my world;
and then : nothing at all.

EDIT:

Sorry to those of you who have been relying on this list for birthday notices; it got a bit cumbersome having to edit this list as well as the one at the top of BIRTHDAYS PART II, so i've deleted this one.

The current list can be found at http://wordsmith.org/board/showflat.pl?Cat=&Board=announcements&Number=25873

Hi Bob: Of course, this song is probably much better known in its English translation as "Falling in love again", but the original German version sounds much better. Great film, too!

SWMBO wouldn't dream of taking the chance that her offspring might share her birthday - Christmas Eve. Probably the cruelest "trick" you can play on a child, she tells me!

oopsy daisy. i forgot about the I&A section
For those of you still waiting, te-he:

Dinge gibt's, die gibt's gar net(nicht) means:
'Some things exist, that don't' or
'Some things that are, are not'
They have a host of these rather inane sayings, e.g.:
'Leut' gibt's, die gibt's gar net' (meaning: Some people exist, that don't)
'Des wois i hoib, hoib i', or rather in HD 'Das was ich habe, habe ich' (meaning: That which I have, I have)


p.s. perhaps you shouldn't have asked, eh!
btw, a Bavarian dictionary can be found here: http://www.planet-interkom.de/schneiderbauer/bayrisch.htm

Oh, my gosh... i just realized i typed your birthday wrong on the calendar, david... so sorry!!

Happy belated birthday (it was April 18th!!!)

It's a big one too, isn't it? One day when you're old like me you'll probably make silly mistakes, too

*hug* hope it's a terrific one.

EDIT:

okay... this is really pathetic... 1) i thought today was the 19th. in fact, i actually thought today was *thursday*, the 19th (2) i thought i must've written it wrong on the calendar i'd posted, because i simply couldn't fathom jackie being a day late (3) i didn't bother to check before i posted (4) the really, really silly thing is that i just checked the calendar a few days ago and made a mental note to post a birthday wish at the appropriate time (5) since by friday i'll likely think it's saturday the 21st, i'll just wish you happy belated birthday now, BobYoungbalt, and save a keystroke or two.

But B96-- its not just you.. the week is kerfluee! I think its because Tax Day-- April 15th-- fell on the 16th-- so we have are days and dates out of order-- or maybe we are just suffering from April Floo! Every check i have written this week has been dated wrong-- and at the grocery store-- the check out clerk said-- its been the same all day!

2) A happy Belated Birthday to everone ain' got no birthday today

Since Jazzo is in High School and seems to be a pretty sharp tack-- it is unlikely that he has reached his legal majority for drinking-- most schools in US don't throw kids out till they have either graduated, (attempted to blow up the school) or turned 21.

He could be just turning 17-- a mere child! as Dicken's would say-- but I'm guessing he has become old enough to vote, or to be drafted (in time of war), and old enough to sign contracts--to wit- 18. Happy days Jazzo-- now and in the future!

Be COOL,JazzO, and have a good day, y'hear? I often recommend the reading of "Ulysses" (Tennyson, NOT Joyce) on one's birthday, but- Lucky You @ 18 - I think you will appreciate it a bit more when you get a little older. (Then I remember that Tennyson was only mid-thirties (36?) when he wrote it. So go ahead and give it a shot now, but,remember, - different from wine, - "Ulysses" gets better as YOU age, IT is ageless.) When you get to be as old as Scribbler, or ---- or --- or ----------, etc. it is absolutely scriptual - canonical - required reading.

Oh,( I didn't forget!) and a very Happy Birthday to you, young man!

Well, thank you all for recognizing me. I don't really feel any older. Yes I'm the monumental 18 now. I can buy porn, cigarettes and lottery tickets now, woohoo. Oh wait, I'm too conservative for all that. . .

Actually Scribbler, we read Tennyson's "Ulysses" in my AP English class just last week. I guess I'll have to go give it another read.

I should apologize for my frequent absences as of late. Track really cuts into one's schedule. I should be back my mid-May.

A belated happy birthday to all my fellow Aprilians, even if you most recent three are on the wrong side of the Taurean cusp. I don't often have the chance to check the list, so forgive me for these generalized greetings. I think the density of b-day's here in April proves just what is the best month to be born in.

Love to all, and may you enjoy your special day and everyday from here on out!

Thanks, helen, it was a glorious autumn day here. Watching media coverage of the day's events, it seems to me that here in NZ, Anzac day, sombre though the commemoration is, has a more unifying effect on the nation than our "official" national holiday. I was also surprised to learn that though NZ sent twice as many troops to WWII, fewer were lost than in WWI. In WWI, NZ lost just over 18,500 men from its population of barely one million at the time, not a nappy price to pay for forging a sense of nationhood.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Oh, CAp, when you are 72, 20 is a BABY!
And different times too, according to research and talking with WWII vets, most were still innocents in the worldly sense.
On a recent TV PBS program with US survivors of a combat platoon, now nearing or in 80s, they said most were still virgins at that age (early 20s) when they were inducted.

Happy Belated Birthday Jazzo & Stales - I'm always behind in what's going on here

when you are 72, 20 is a BABY! ( sorry haven't taken time to learn the color tricks yet) -- at my age(40), 20 is a baby but that opinion may have something to do with all the college kids deal with.

Loc: Utopia, not in literal sense, ...
Bingley, my dear fellow,

You are so very kind to remember me and our fellow AWADers with your thoughtful greetings upon our several natal anniversaries.

In reply to:

THINK INTERESTING TROPICAL DISEASES


"Feeling a bit off his porridge, our Bingley, is he? I say, will someone fetch him a G & T, a bit stiff on the "T", don't you know? Medicinal purposes and all that sort of rot." .......... "Oh, thank you, Sergeant-Major, there's a good chap!"
"Now, Bingley, down the hatch! That should buck you up a bit, my lad! But keep clear of the Bolla-Wolla WATER, except for bathing, and that's an ORDER!"

REFRAIN: "Come you back, you British soldier!"
"Come you back 'FROM' Rangoon and Mandalay!"


Post-Script: Pray convey my respects to Lord Pemberly, and, as well, my very warmest regards to his most excellent Lady-wife, our beloved Lizzy. Charmin' creature, wot?"
Best wishes also to you, dear fellow, for a most rapid and completely full recovery from one who is, and ever shall remain,
Yrs most sincerely & etc
Scribbler

My brother and sister, and my own dear wife Jane to whose indefatigable care I owe my recent recovery present their compliments to Mr. Scribbler, whose effusions in these fora they have been reading with much interest and amusement. Should circumstances permit any easing of their incognito, they would be greatly honoured by the opportunity to present their compliments in person.

S*I*G*H

Ohh-hh, Scribbler--- If we ever meet, and you speak like that, I will literally be at your feet, in a swoon of
sheer delight. I, I, I...oh, I can't say it, this time.
But it's what I said before.

Happy birthday to Rouspeteur for today, and advance felicitations to Rapunzel for tomorrow in case I don't get on-line then.
