Default 99 Birthdays on January 1st!

OK why are there 99 birthdays listed today?

I think it is a combination of everything.

Lots of people put down bogus birthdays. I usually give one, though not for this site. My favorite bogus BD is 1-1-60. Most sites have no business asking for a BD, though this one obviously must.

Similar but unrelated - My 5 year old's b-day is 12/30... My 3 year old's b-day is 12/29. All we can figure is that puts their conception right around 4/15 - tax day!

Seriously, it kinda sux for them. We got em a little present each and told them it was their b-days, but no one else did. We are gonna try and get in the routine of doing their parties mid-year...

I think that when you join a site, you put down the easiest birthday- like Edwort said, it's not something I usually agree with. Except here, since I used my correct bday when I registered realizing it was to prove I was old enough to join! I even put the correct year, of course!

Couples fill out their tax returns & realize they need more deductions.

You should give them Bday parties in late June/early July and call it a "non-birthday birthday party".

So, with today being my son and granddaughters birthdays, what does that make us.

I think people just enter a bogus birthday. That would explain the large plus 100 year old group we have. Or definite proof that brewing and drinking home brew lengthens your life considerably. I think it is more fun to believe the latter.
