Yes, it seems to be true. Statistically, there is a greater chance that you will die on your birthday, than any of the other 364 days of the year:
It emerges that we are 14 per cent more likely to die on our birthday, according to new research based on a study of more than two million
The reasons for this higher-than-average birthday death rate are so far speculative. The (unusual) death rate increases with age, which I find odd. I
would assume that young people are more prone to kill themselves accidentally than old people, but then again I know little of how old people
celebrate their birthdays. Do they eat cake? Do they get pissed out of their heads and climb the balcony railing with a bottle of Jack Daniels in each
hand? Or... do they simply invite the wrong clown?
The researchers say there are two competing explanations for the phenomenon. The postponement theory suggests that seriously ill people can somehow
hold on until their birthday has passed, as they try to reach the milestone.
If this theory is valid and we can learn to control it, it will be of great value to humanity. Then we can plan that trip to Naples before
pre-fixed death date.
Now I'm waiting for the study that shows how many people die in unusually higher numbers at other
people's B-day parties.
