when I get bored with Excel open...
気持: bored

There are 28 of you on my friends list who have your birthdate (including the year) indicated on your userinfo (the latest beta of the Semagic LJ client shows this in a neat little list when you open the Edit Friends... dialog). I got bored enough today to do a few calculations (this is without my own birthday added in, even though I am on my friends list)...

Most common birth years: 1980 and 1984 (3 each)
Most common birth month: October (5)
Average birthdate: 27 August 1978; Average age: 24
Closest birthdate to average: ayo27 (12 April 1978; deviation 5 months 16 days)
Standard deviation: 5 years 11 months 30 days

I'll refrain from specifying who the oldest and youngest are, but I will say that the difference between them is 21 years...

BTW, what is it with October? Most of the people I know IRL were born in October, and it's the most common birth month among people reading this too. I don't get it.

Perhaps January is a very boring month, and people must entertain themselves.

Indeed. There are worse ways to keep warm through the cold nights.

Yes, but you'd think that now that people tend to have heating systems in their houses that the distribution of birthdays would normalize, but it apparently hasn't, seeing as I still know many more people born in the autumn than in the spring.
