They didn't even have birthdays in 63.

Their birth certificate was probably "printed" on a marble plaque.

Tell me folks, how was it to see dinosaurs alive?
I missed out on the dinosaurs, but we got to play with real chemicals in chemistry class, and it shop we got to use stuff you could get hurt with.

And... Pluto was a planet.

The correct thing to post (on December 31st 2017) will be:

Only today and never ever again, not even in a thousand years:
If you add your birth-year to your age, the result will be 2017.
Isn't that magic?
(No it is math)
I fully agree. Now I need to find a mod who hides this thread until 31.12.2017

Next time I go back to my tripple checking incoming info before passing it on.

tomorrow is actually really a special day: it is exactly 2 years ago that Miss Piggy and Kermit announced the end of their relationship on Twitter.

Re: Today only phenomenon .... well I thought it was

Look at the maths the other way around!

Deduct your age from 2017.
If you do this after your birthday date then the answer (of course) is your birth year, do it before your birthday date then the answer is your birth year plus one.

Absolutely.
I have no idea how this thing was able to get "past my desk".

It only works for people born in the 20th century, that may be why.

No it doesn't. The times it works, it works for all.

PaddyG's birthday this year is still ahead.

Or he forgot how old he really is.

Age might be a spectrum, after all.
