Mathematically Linked Friends

I'm born on May 24. My friend is born on April 15. Our birthdays are 39 days apart. "39 is the smallest natural number which has three partitions into three parts which all give the same product when multiplied: {25, 8, 6}, {24, 10, 5}, {20, 15, 4}." The second group of numbers contains the numbers 5 (May) and 24. It also contains the number 10. 10 in Roman numerals is X. I have one X chromosome (XY). The third group of numbers contains the numbers 4 (April) and 15. It also contains the number 20. 20 in Roman numerals is XX. She has two X chromosomes (XX).

Boyfriends and birthdays

My very first boyfriend was born Feb 13th My ex-husband was born Feb 12th Short term boyfriend Feb 11th Recently met another potential boyfriend born on Feb 12th <---time to run. I don't date a lot, so this is getting ridiculous. This is all random people I like and then find out their birthdays later.

Four members of the same family died in the same day and month of different years

This is regarding my mother´s family tree, relatives - Two uncles have died in the same day, April 4th, 2012, Mauro Hiroaki Arai and Roberto Oriondo Dias, one in Parana state, another in Sao Paulo state, Brazil. In the next year, the husband of another relative in Parana had died too, April 4th, 2013. And yesterday, April 4th, 2015, Pedro Denshiti Nogawa (son of Kinoe Nogawa, former Arai when single) died too. It is 4 persons in the Arai family who died in the exact same day and month of different years... a strange coincidence...

Wolf dog and wild boers

At times, I take the principle "everything is connected with everything" (mutual interconnectedness ) LITERALLY... ... On hearing the news of the catastrophe of the Germanwings plain on the 25th March I soon tried to figure out what I was doing at the moment when the plain disappeared from the radar-screen on the 24th, 10:53. I found that almost exactly this was the time when I was sending an email to a married couple in Schwitzerland. A link, no text.

workmates birthdays

My husband and I took a travelling job doing a marketing promotion and a third guy was hired who also traveled with us. As a team we answered to 2 people in the office. Essentially we were a team of five and there wasn't anyone else from our company directly involved in our project. My husband, our travelling co-worker and the Account executive share the same birthday. I share a birthday with the account executive. Also coincidentally I stumbled on your site today. husband's birthday.
