# Today the Whole World is the Same Age, find out how!

By Matthias Samuel

It is quite fascinating to see how the whole world can be of the same age on this day, there is only one chance every 1,000 years this happens. Now, a lot of people are going to curious that how is that even possible.

The fact seems to be quiet fun but it is fake. A similar post was uploaded back in 2018 stating the same fact, it was basically a tweet by Arlene Dickinson, who is a Canadian businesswoman, investor, author, and television personality, the tweet said that if you add (your age) + your year of birth, every person is = 2020 a simple formula but it works.

Today the whole world is the same age! There’s only one chance every 1,000 years this happens……

Your age plus your year of birth for every person = 2018.

Try it!

Even though the fact seems to be fun but it is not correct, actually half of it is not correct (this is not something that happens only once in a thousand years), suppose someone is 21 years old in 2020 if he were to add his age and birth year the answer would be (21+1999) 2020, now next year the same person is going to be 22 years old and if he applies the same simple formula in 2021 he would be of the same age, for example (age 22+ 1999 year of birth)= 2021.

Even for a fake fact this is quite funny as only half of it is fake.
