Re: Evolution

I believe that in China a newborn is considered to be a year old. I had a Chinese friend in school who never knew what age to put on questionnaires.

I dunno about China, but that certainly true in Thailand, so a fair chance China the same - it's actually saying they are now in that year rather than having completed it.

As an example, me Missus was born on 19.9.70 - so in Western terms she would now be 41 (as having completed 41 years), whereas in Thai (and Chinese?) terms she would be referred to as 42 (as already being in her 42nd year).....both of course are 100% correct, just wrong when you expect one instead of the other.

Women adding a year to their ages for no apparent reason? - took me many years to twig that .....somehow I doubt the concept will catch on in the West .

I have done a lot of internet based research on this - and it is true.

Certainly none of the videos I have seen include any resulting babies getting born. To be fair, not all of them have included any men .

I would post links, but..........
