I’ll be joining you in 35-land in a few days, and I feel exactly the same way about it. :-P But hope you have a fantastic day, and celebrate doubly so this weekend!

Congrats on another lap around the sun.

35 is a milestone, here in the states, anyway. If you weren’t Canadian, you would now be eligable to run for President.

Hey, my 35th birthday was Sunday, and I thought it was great! Of course, it also included my husband getting me a sonic screwdriver: http://www.thinkgeek.com/gadgets/tools/e2dc/.

Come on, 35 is awesome. It’s also divisible by 7! You are halfway to 70! If you were Thai, you would be middle-aged! Most importantly, you’re one more person that I’m a tiny bit younger than, gramps!

35 is when you realize you were fooling yourself throughout your early 30s when you said “well at least I’m not yet halfway to 40.”

Because at 35 you realize 20 was halfway to 40.

Happy birthday MGK, and thank you for bringing this site into the world! I think tomorrow’s “Who’s Who” should be the DC Universe version of you.

PS Hey, I heard on the news that Human Torch died earlier this year. Has he been revived yet?

Feb 9 is also my Birthday so as my gift to you, I am telling you about it. If you think 35 is sort of milestoney, wait till you get to 45.

Cheers from the land of Oz.

35′s not such a bad age. I’m going to be celebrating it for the third or fourth time this year.

…or maybe just the second or third. Or maybe I’m thinking of 32.

Happy almost-mid-life-crisis.

32 is a pretty great age, I can see why you’d try to hold on to it.

“2 is a pretty great age, I can see why you’d try to hold on to it.”

Agreed.

You are exactly nine days older than I. Wait, I forgot to convert from the metric system…

Higher than you’d think.

Isn’t it a law that you get your birthday off work? I always take it off…

The probability of someone having the same birthday as mgk is 1/365 (discounting leap years).

However, the probability of two people in a random group sharing *a* birthday is much higher. In fact, you only need 23 people in a group for chances are that two of them will have the same birthday.

Um, no. You only need a group of two people for there to be a chance of them sharing the same birthday. Not a very high one, but definitely greater than zero.

30 seconds of Google later I find that the probability of two people sharing a birthday is 50% in a group of 23 people and 99% at 57, even though it doesn’t reach 100% until 367.

Oh man, 2 is a WAY better age. Don’t let that go. Stay 2 forever, MGK! Baby humans are housebroken by that age, right?

35 isn’t an important birthday? Tell that to Dante Alighieri.

I typed too fast. I meant to say “you only need 23 people in a group for better-than-even chances that two of them will have the same birthday.”

My bad.

Many happy returns — as a guy rapidly approaching the other side of 40: my birthday this year ends in a “9″ — I’m envious. ;)

What Naomi Libicki said! You’re midway through life’s journey, so I’d be careful in the deep dark woods if I were you…

35 was the first birthday that kicked me in the balls…did not enjoy it…to borrow from Dana Gould, its not old, but it the beginning of not young…You are also entering the age of out of control ear hair growth…so congratulations…
