    Tbh I didn't really drink before I was 18, but it was the idea that others could order from a bar, whereas I couldn't. I've still to even start driving lessons :p: When I was 16, I really wanted to learn to drive as soon I turned 17, but 3 years down the line i've not got round to it yet.
    Yeah, I always said I would start this summer as soon as I turned 18, but to be honest, I'm too busy and can't really be bothered. It's really weird how my friends drive to pick me up though!

    1st December. After 33 pages there's still no one who shares my birthday. There was a close one with 2nd December. Interesting.

    Hey there =]

    Don't know if you've heard of the birthday paradox, but it basically states that once you reach 57 people in a room there is a 99% chance that they share the same birthday.

    So to try this out, just post your birthday and we'll see how many people it takes before a birthday is shared

    To start off - June 18th
    me, littleswany and ThatsAGoodOne349 all have our 18 birthdays on the 30th June!
    We triplets!
    the odds of that are surely different to those stated

    3 people out of 994 sharing a birthday is a probability of 100%
