                              How Common Is Your Birthday?

                              The following table shows every day of the year, from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, along with a ranking based on how many babies were born in the United States on that date between 1973 and 1999.

                               

                              I wonder if you separated out naturally timed births vs. scheduled (c or induced) how this chart would change. 

                               

                              I looked up my birthday  - June 13th and was kind of surprised that it ranked so much lower than either the 12th or the 14th.  Would people avoid "lucky number 13" deliberately?  So I looked at all the months.  In every month the 13th ranked lower in births than the 12th or 14th.  Sometimes significantly lower (higher number is lower number of births. )

                                Say, A Charlie Brown Christmas

                                The reason why

                                Their delivery pauses in weird spots

                                Is because....

                                 

                                They used actual kids for recording the dialog.  Apparently, some of the younger kids couldn't really read yet.  And some of the slightly older ones read outloud exactly like most 2nd graders.  SO.... they'd feed them their dialog one chunk at a time and record the kid restating it.  Then they spliced the pieces together.  Being the 1960s, there was just so much recording magic they could do to smooth this all out.

                                 

                                It is interesting to me that some of the dialog is a lot more choppy than other parts.  Some kids were better at it than others.  Linus' big speech in the Christmas episode is a lot smoother, for example, than anything Charlie Brown says.
