    Where'd everybody go? I only see three posts, Pete's, BethC's, and a question about Atlanta. Where is everybody -- or is it just me? Did I take a wrong turn? Am I lost in Transportation? HELP!!!!!!

    Just Kidding!!!! :p

    I'm sure I'll find everybody else eventually. In the meantime, I REALLY LIKE IT HERE...... :bounce:

    LOL Minnieme! No wrong turn. Saturday mornings are usually pretty slow anyway, and I think it may take a few hours for everyone to wander over here. Never fear, though. As soon as everyone sees all these cool new features, I'm sure they'll be posting like crazy! :bounce:

    Not so weird. One of 365 beings born in 2001 have that same birthday :)

    Try your stats again. According to http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0005067.html, there were 4,025,933 births in 2001. By averages, 11,030 were born on any certain day.

    I think she meant 1 out of every 365 people born that year.

    Exactly, dis_guy :D. 4,025,933/11,030=364.998459
    Which is what I said: one out of every 365 beings born that year - 2001 - has the same birthday. The 1/365 is true of any non-leap year, actually, but we're talking about April 26, 2001.

    It's unacceptable to begin a sentence with a digit, which is why my original response was written the way it was.
