"What percentage of Americans have their birthday on Halloween?"There was a slider bar, and I was supposed to slide to the percentage I thought was the answer.
I debated this for a bit. "Can't be that many, right? I mean I don't think I know anybody with Halloween as their birthday."
Why I had this thought, I'm not quite sure because I know that I WOULD CERTAINLY REMEMBER SOMEONE HAVING HALLOWEEN ON THEIR BIRTHDAY.
But never mind my internal arguments.
At first I thought I'd be clever and pick 31% (because Halloween is on October 31st? Get it?!?! ZING!) but I thought a third of the population having Halloween as their birthday was a bit steep.
So I inversed it. 13%. Seems like it's low enough.
Well you can click the pic to make it readable for yourself or just listen: ONE PERCENT.
ONE PERCENT of Americans have Halloween as their birthday.
Now I don't know what the magic internet survey people used to find that number. Heck I don't even know if I should trust it. But I do.
Bottom line: if you've got Halloween as your birthday you are RARE.
