    If your born on February 29th does that mean you only age once every four years?

    So if I'd been born on February 29th 1977 I'd only be 8.[face_dancing]

    A paradox, a paradox. A most ingenious paradox.

    My great-grandfather was born on February 29th 1904. He didn't quite make it to his 25th birthday.

    98 1/2 years on earth isn't so bad, and he was diabetic, so it's not like he could have had the cake.

    I feel bad for people born on Feb 29 because they have to put up with dumb leap year jokes all the time. As a twelve year old, I imagine being told you are only 3 would be quite annoying.

    I wonder if anyone's tried arguing they're only 4 as a way out of being drafted.
