In probability theory, the birthday problem or birthday paradox concerns the probability that, in a set of n randomly chosen people, some pair of them will have the same birthday. By the pigeonhole principle, the probability reaches 100% when the number of people reaches 367 (since there are only 366 possible birthdays, including February 29). However, 99.9% probability is reached with just 70 people, and 50% probability with 23 people.
Not sure why The Birthday Problem blows my mind, but it got under my skin today, and I just HAD to make a visual representation of it. Press [Z] to generate a birthday for each of the 70 cakes. Each cake is assigned a value between 1 and 366 (1 for each day of the year). If there are two matching birthdays, their candles light up! If you want to see it represented numerically instead of visually, press [X]!

"Ahh, this is the life." Sipping on a frosted glass of bug juice, Minimalizard sat back in his tiny lawn chair, soaking up some much-deserved rays of sunlight. He'd spent the whole morning obsessively tidying his minimalistic home ... sweeping up dirt, throwing out trash, and generally cleansing his life of excess.
But suddenly, a shadow fell over his yard. Minimalizard removed his sunglasses in disbelief. "What the ..."
Hundreds of brightly-colored crates loomed in the sky above, plummeting toward his house. They'd almost certainly rearrange his decor - and not a good way.
"Not if I have anything to do with it!" Minimalizard gulped down the rest of his drink and hopped nimbly from his chair. It wasn't going to be easy, but if he had to punch, stomp and shoot every crate from the sky himself, he'd do it.
"Because I ... am ... MINIMALIZARD!"
