2. There are 50 people at a party. What is the probability that two people at the party share the same birthday?

Significantly over 50%, but I don't feel like finding the exact numbers.

Consider: One, probability is a factor which operates *within* natural forces. Two, probability is *not* operating as a factor. Three, we are now held within un-, sub- or super-natural forces. Discuss.
