Fun or Interesting Data

  1. Oct 12, 2004 #1
    Hi everyone :smile: ! I have been looking for some data about something fun or interesting. I've only been able to find boring things like the results to a coin toss. Does anyone know of a website that has real data on something fun or interesting?

    ~Thanks

    Do you mean random numbers, or random results?

    I need a data set with 30 - 50 values. It is not random. I need the data from and experiment or survey.

    What are the odds that two people in a room of 30 random persons share the same birthday (date and month) ? Also figure out for 40 and 50. (you could start with a google search)

    See if the results surprise you.
