I'm Not That Special: Chart Of How Common A Birthday Is

how-common-is-birthday.jpg

This is an easy-to-understand chart depicting how common birthdays are in the US based on data from 1973-1999. *sobbing* My parents said I was special -- it looks like half the f***ing country was born August 12th! So yeah, basically if you were born in July-September you aren't that special because it's a well known fact that everybody porks like crazy in the winter because it's cold and, well, there's nothing good on TV and you're already under the covers. Nobody wants to have sex in the middle of August and get all hot & sticky then not be able to cool down because your shitty window-unit air conditioner doesn't even work well enough to prevent you from breaking a sweat sitting still. "You're crazy. I love hot, summer sex." YOU ARE A FREAK. "No, I just have A/C that works." Ooooh, Mr. Moneybags over here -- shut up and go eat your cavalier! "Caviar?" OMG you think you're SO fancy. You're no better than me! *tries flicking booger but it keeps getting stuck to a fingernail*

Thanks to Gregory, who tried telling me he was born on a leap day. Impressive, Gregory, but nowhere near as impressive as being born ON A SPACESHIP like I was. Haha -- I win!

    September 23, one of the most common. I look at it like this, I have something in common with a lot of people.

    Mines more common than I thought (Jul. 18th).

    As you can also see that certain stores (love and babies) make a great profit around the summer and the fall.

    I feel like a birthday Hipster now. (October 31st)

    You guys wouldn't understand.

    It's also interesting to note that it appears that October to December is the human mating season.

     I envy you, Oct 31st is one of the best days out of the year. Happy Birthdayween.

    It's pretty good except that people knock on my door expecting me to give them stuff rather than the other way around.

  • Sweet, i'm special! My box is completely white. (Look at November 31st)

  •  November only has 30 days..

  • The 13th of most months is suspiciously barren. Perhaps mother's push harder or hold back to make it so? Or arrange induction.

  • New Year's Eve/Day celebratory sex, obv.

  • $18922249

    I love me some heat maps. 

    Feb 14, the obvious outlier. Interesting. 

    Edit: July 4 and 5 as well.

    So are March birthdays the most common in the Southern Hemisphere?

  • Not gonna lie, I feel special right now. 

    January 31st is not so common.

    So I'm guessing there's a lot of make-up sex for all the bad things you said in the in-laws on thanks giving, a lot of sex for the right gift on christmas, and a lot of sex for the marriage proposal on new year's eve and going on in November, December and January!

    =P
