Website: Please verify your age to continue.

[–]MarcoMC1231 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Sometimes i get pissed and just make it fly to like 1931 or something

[–]PM_me_yer_booobies 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Me: Old enough

Website: old enough to what?

Me: old enough.... to party?

[–]CondemingSocks 6 points7 points  (0 children)

u sure? im born 1-jan-1437

[–]Hellothere_1 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Yeah, the first thing I always check is whether or not the website will accept a 01.01.18XX date. Funnily enough most of them do.

My bank's year of birth dropdown goes back to about 1870 and I'm wondering why anyone of that age would want to sign up for online banking.

[–]LeonZeRoar 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I wouldn’t want online baking either

[–]Immortal_Azrael 43 points44 points  (10 children)

You know you don't have to put your actual birthday in. I always just change the year. Usually to a decade I wasn't even born in.

[–]evil95 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Yep. I just hit that year button and spin the mouse wheel.

[–]Immortal_Azrael 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Yeah I always assumed that's what everyone does.

[–]SgWaterQn 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Yeah, lucky it didn't happen, otherwise we would've had scared nuclear babies in October.

[–]Immortal_Azrael 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Um, what?

[–]SgWaterQn 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Scared nuclear babies.

And then you lose your password and your shit out of luck.

[–]cerebellum42 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nobody's talking about signing up with a fake birth date, this is about those age verify boxes. On a different note, if you can use your birthday to reset your password, that's a big problem in itself.

Because of that, I remember reading that Gabe Newell said according to the data they have on Steam, 90%(maybe it was higher) of Steam users birthdays is on January 1st. Ain’t nobody got time for this.

[–]Natuday 0 points1 point  (0 children)

did you know the average age of viewers on the youtube video " Mining at night | minecraft music video | ANIMATED " is 237 years old?

[–]MundaneByDay 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Imagine how much time they save in their lives... It probably adds up to hours. Hours that I'll never have, sigh

[–]ipok6 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You could always just say your birthday's Jan 1st, everyone lies about their age when signing up for things anyways

[–]PM_ME_STEAMGAMES_PLS 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Add to that the time used running up escalators and typing u instead of you and they will practically live forever.

[–]justmoreredditors 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I thought everyone was born on Jan 1 on the internet

[–]Ehenderson5400[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I get that most people don't put their actual birthday. I just feel the need to do it for some reason lol

[–]Clintiepoo 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Too bad their parents miss out on the tax deduction they would have gotten if the kid was born the previous day...

[–]pumpkinlessdriver 0 points1 point  (2 children)

My mom had the option of having me on December 31st or January 1st. She chose the 31st for the tax deduction.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I bet your pissed

[–]pumpkinlessdriver 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Eh, it’s okay. There’s always a ton of parties and I have the next day off.

[–]The_camperdave 2 points3 points  (1 child)

For those who don't get what the blaze the OP is talking about, he's talking about a birthday entering field with drop-down lists for the day, month, and year. A person born on January 1st would only have to change the year because the day and month default to January 1.

[–]Natuday 2 points3 points  (0 children)

i think we got it

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Plus every year every has giant party’s counting down to your birthday

[–]FrankNSam 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yeah, but they’re hungover every year on their birthday..

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The real winners are the ones that are born on '00 years. They just have to look at the year. (If they make it over 99 it's all down hill from there, reset to 0.)

[–]DocLeWolfe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

can confirm. Born Jan 2nd

[–]JuantheTacoFairy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Can confirm, was born on the 1st of January

[–]redeyesredbull 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Imagine being on January 1st, 2000. You could know how many days you've been alive with barely any math!

[–]NowFreeToMaim 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Unless you have an apple device and have auto fill that works 90% of the time.

[–]BeezyJ 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Almost never the case. It's usually a drop down menu that says MM: DD: YY: (or YYYY:) or it says Month Day Year. Just setting the year would leave the month and day still blank. I don't remember seeing one defaulted to Jan 1st.

[–]Natuday 0 points1 point  (0 children)

a lot are. also, many others have arrows on the side for UP/DOWN so just click each once and it defaults to January 1st

[–]turtleheed 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I never put my real age on any website unless it’s a bank or phone company. Some of these companies are reckless.

[–]linopii 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Being born on the 30th of november, i agree

[–]Riftus 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Hey buddy, try not to steal next time. https://redd.it/7cacan

[–]Ehenderson5400[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh yeah my bad. Because I go back and read 63d old shower thought posts. But good to know.

[–]Chronogos 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Better yet, they'll always have their birthday off from work/school!

[–]Rinver373 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was born january 19th, and when I was 18 most websites had my birth year already selected. So this Shower Thoughts post really spoke to me.
