    The paradox is this;

    In a room of people, in this case a forum intuition leads you to think that need 365 people or somewhere around that for people to have the same birthday (since there are 365 possible birthdays someone can have)
    However once you get to 57 people in the room, there is a 99% chance that you will find two people with the same birthday - much lower than 365

    What is the point of this? It's going to take around 365 posts for a particular person to find someone with the same birthday.
