:O That is so creepy, we posted about 2 minutes apart...
13. Hurray for being younger than most people in your year group (if you don't have any gap years) AND for statistically being disadvantaged when starting school (can't find the article but kids born in August struggle more with schoolwork)

I have no idea how that works since the odds are 1 in 365 but ill go with it.
The probability that a single pair of people share a birthday is 1/365, yes. But in a room of 55 people, there are 1485 different possible pairs of people.

The probability that a single pair of people is a non-birthday sharing pair is 364/365
The probability that all 1485 pairs are non-birthday sharing is (364/365)^1485, which is only about 1.7%
So the probability that a birthday-sharing pair exists is about 98.3%.
17. 22nd August

This is fun

I saw the 1st, 10th, 23rd and 24th. But no one sharing my day yet unless I missed just that post
