I've noticed that the Today's Birthdays sidebar on the main page has had no information since the start of the year. Or maybe no-one (out of some 25,000+ members) has had a birthday in the past week.

 

Seems kinda statistically improbable ??

Cap'n, edit the title and make it a question. I don't think it's getting the attention of admin.

I find the absence of of any birthdays strange also.

I'll be glad to cancel my birthday.  Adulting is far too much trouble.

I agree Mark.  I have taken a new approach that seems to work for me.  I only adult during those hours I am required to work.  Before, After and on weekends - no adulting.   The admiral is getting used to it I think and it works wonders! =)

Hi Mark, I don't think that you really want to cancel your birthday!!!! Serious consequences with that.

 

I have heard that statisticians have proved, that people who have the most birthdays live the longest.

 

Cheers Chris

When I turned fifty, I told everyone I was "forty-ten".


Long time ago, a friend of mine said, I can't get older than twenty. This was at a birthday party of his,
so we celebrated his twenty-fifteen birthday.
In Sweden it is legal to go to a bar or restaurant to buy alcohol when you are 18, but purchasing strong alcohol from specific store then you have to be twenty.
So, that's the reason of the "twenty" logic. :pirate41:

It didn't happen last year.  Are you saying all those people took their birthdays off the list?

I'm certain that we will cope (somehow) until you can get it fixed, Chuck. Meanwhile, if anyone has a birthday coming up, I'll have a supply of fairy bread, cake, and soda-pop (adult beverages if you can prove you are 21yo+) waiting right here.

:D  :D  :D
