ok, this is rather pointless and this knowledge really doesn't add or detract anything to my life either way, but I was just curious, how rare is it to find someone who has a social security number one off from yours? I won't post my number (for blatantly obvious reasons), but at work we have to use the last several digits of it to clock in. A girl I know there had a number to clock in that was one number before mine. At first I didn't think much of it, "the other numbers are probably different," but then last week I found out her birthday is the same exact day as mine. Still, I thought, "well . . . she looks older than I do . . . and she's a senior while I'm a junior . . . it's probably just a coink'a'dink . . . . " But then TODAY I found out that not only was her birthday the exact same day, she's the exact same age too :eek: But that would still have to mean that no other baby in the U.S. was born inn between wouldn't it? :confused:

How odd would that be?

So if you want to know if someone was born in between you should ask at what time she was born find out at what time you were born, calculate how many people are born each day and divied that by 24 and then compare this time with the difference of time between your two birthtimes.

well, the trouble with that would be this;

My parents have a plaque dedicated to my sissy who was born at 9:38, as she was a blessing :nodding: I on the other hand, was known only as an inconvenience, and therefore we only know I was born at lunchtime :lol:

Ironic considering my username, but true . . . .
