Happy Birthday to Me

In an hour and a half it will be 10/10/10. Could a birthday be any more auspicious than that?

Plus, I will be 49 years old. In the Bible, that would be 7×7 or perfection squared.

So, good for me. Many happy returns of the day, etc. But I’d better enjoy it, because soon enough I’ll be a grumpy old man. Which brings me to today’s science fact: old men really are grumpier. From the Telegraph of the U.K.:

“We laugh twice as much in our teens as we do in our fifties. And our findings suggest that it’s all downhill from 52.”

The study found that while an infant can laugh aloud as many as 300 times every day, life rapidly becomes far less fun.
