12/31/2005: From the Interesting Coincidences Department
I would normally have posted this yesterday, but I was away from the 'net just about all day.
We hear from a normally impeachable source (Dr. Science himself, but verified at the AllMusic Guide) that Davy Jones and Michael Nesmith of the 60's made-for-TV rock group "The Monkees" were both born on December 30 (Jones in 1945, and Nesmith in 1942).
Mathematical fact of the day: As those of you who've mastered your probability formulae know, the probability of at least two persons in four (as you remember, there were four members in The Monkees: Jones, Nesmith, Mickey Dolenz and Peter Tork) sharing the same birthday is 0.016.
