Waiting that extra day for decisions would suck...bad.

so wait, what does happen if you were born on the 29th in a leap year? is your birthday shifted on non-leap years?

we usually celebrate mine on the 28th even when there is leap year just to keep it consistent. And technically I am 6.

Technically, since a year is the time that it takes the Earth to revolve around the sun, your age is equal to the number of times you've been around the sun. So you're not technically six, really just calendarically (yeah I know I just made that up) six. :laugh:

Didn't God know that he was off by one quarter of a day when he made the Earth revolve around the Sun? So much for intelligent design... :cool:
