Oh. Well then, in that case there's been another two hits. On my late mother's and my sister birthdays.

Yeah, I suppose according to the strict version of the Birthday Paradox it really is restricted to people in the room (or in this case, on this thread), not people who those people know, etc etc...

For 57 or more people, the probability is more than 99%, tending toward 100% as the pool of people grows. The mathematics behind this problem leads to a well-known cryptographic attack called the birthday attack.

We do not have enough samples to really benefit from the paradox. Only persons visiting this board as members should be taken in our experiment.
