What is the

__minimum number of people__I would have to have gathered in the one place to guarantee with 100% certainty, that no matter what day of the year I call out (from Jan 1st to Dec 31 in any random order)...it will be the birthday of at ONE person in that group?

Does anyone have a definite minimum (calculated number) in mind ?

Is such a number even calculable...?

If so, is it possible to calculate such a figure using the "Birthday Paradox" asa the basis for an answer

Ps: and no this is NOT homework...I am too olde for that sort of caper.
