So we were talking at work and Justin said that in the 4 years he's been married, he's had one weekend off. He said that his wife's family is HUGE and they have like a birthday/wedding every weekend. This got me to thinking.

There are 52 weeks in a year. You would have to know at least 52 people to have every weekend filled with a birthday. Of course, some people will have birthdays in the same week, but even still.

I know at least 52 people through family and friends. I mean, there's 80 people on my friends list. I have 17 or so cousins. I have a ton of friends and aquaintenses from SNC.

So - if I were to gather their birthdays, would I have a birthday every week? Or - how many people would i have to know in order for that to happen?
Actually, I know that there's a 39% chance that in a class of 20, two people will share the same birthday.

But that's where my math ends
e^iπ + 1 = 0
