Pi Day

I am sure this group is already aware of this, Steven Hawkin died on Pi day which is also Einstein’s birthday and the 300th anniversary of the death of Galileo. Thinks like this make me wonder?

@Jimmy_Sellers So, as a science guy, I just have to mention The Birthday Paradox.

In undergrad one of my professors did this and it worked. In a room of at least 23 people, there is a 50-50 chance that two people have the same birthday.

Don’t believe me? Check out these fun articles.

Explains how a lot of these ‘happens on the same day’ things are not that unlikely statistically after all and how statistics is counter-intuitive at times.

I have to ask does this also apply to the expiration date?:grinning:
