When I was born, I was the 3,211,766,418th person on earth. :D

Interesting interactive calculator from the BBC News:

The World at 7 Billion

And congratulations, if at birth you were the 2,500,000,000 or so person then living, you've already outlived at least 3/4ths of them!

Do all of you realize you are posting your exact birth date by posting your number here? It is extremely easy, via trial and error, to do that on the web site. I just took one of your numbers, and within about a minute, figured out the date it corresponded to.

Just sayin'...

This website puts the total number born at 107,602,707,791. They list the assumptions they used to arrive at that number so you can decide how accurate the number may or may not be.

On the site posted by the OP, I'm shown as number 2,330,793,191.

So you know then that I just had a birthday? 'Cause if you are asking, my favorite color is burgundy, I wear a size 10 shoe, my birthstone is opal, but I really love diamonds. :p

Yep, and you're just about the same age as I am! :D

And Fred has a birthday coming up later this month (and it's a big one! :cheer:)

I thought about that, but it bothers me not at all if people know how old I am. Obviously it does you...why? Too old, or not old enough?

I don't care if anyone knows how old I am, but I do have an issue with putting my birth date out on a public site for identity theft reasons. That is just one piece of information that makes it easier for someone to get access to your credit, medical, employment, etc. records.

I am very careful regarding sharing my personal information on the internet, and I won't put my birth date (even w/o a year) on any site -- facebook, myspace, forums, etc. It is just not worth the risk to me.

I just made the post to inform people that they are putting their birth date on a public site by posting their number here, in case they didn't realize it. It doen't bother me a bit if you want to share your information to the world.

There are a number of sites that will give you a person's birthday, along with a lot of other information. If someone wants to go to the trouble of finding my date of birth there are easier ways for them to do it other than decoding a big number posted on a web site where I don't use my complete name and where it is impossible to verify if I entered the correct number or supplied false information either accidently or intentionally.

I'll take chocolate chip cookies rather than cake for that "big birthday" that you posted that I have coming up! :)

So far all I know is:
your birthday is near (i.e., +/- 183) 3,424,805,661
your name is Kurt
you live is Northern Colorado
you own at HGVC Seaworld

Presuming that all this info you provided is correct, I feel I'm on the verge of knowing the rest of your vitals too. :eek: :D

Oh and all of the above applies to me too except my name, town, and resorts are different. The birthday info is right on.

I bought a timeshare a while back. The seller looked us up on the internet and simply mailed the paperwork to us. Or so he thought. Turns out there's another couple with the same names as my wife and me that lives elsewhere in CA. Our wives have a very unique spelling of their first names. In this case, they were most happy that some sucker (me) wanted this timeshare paperwork from them. He and I were similar ages but unrelated as best we could tell.
