Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 249 – Generation X - Nominate!!!!

Good theme but what if one can't find the actual date a singer was born in but it is still pretty clear they were born between 1965 and 1980?

How can it be clear? :eek:h:


Some people at the ice rink think I'm Gen Z, I'm not correcting them. :eek:h:

Just for those not mathematically inclined...

1965 was 53 years ago and 1980 was 38 years ago. You can do the rest of the work, surely. Off the top of my head Ye-ezy is eligible :eek:h:

Doesn't wikipedia know everything? Someone very unknown then? :confused:

It's not difficult to find an artist/band for which the lead singer's birthdate is not readily available. Checking now I see a song I've been waiting to nominate has one of those (the singer is very likely outside the range anyway so no loss for this game).

Michelle Gurevich is a recent example, can't find her date of birth.
Her birth certificate got lost in rural China.

That's a very good question. To clarify the situation, each player must investigate and find a link where the age is mentioned. If the search fails, you should not choose this artist.

Wikipedia is a wonderful resource centre and I do have a lot of regard for it but to answer the question.....not quite everything.

As Markus says, there are a lot of bands in which the individual members do not have their own Wikipedia pages and hence no information on which those members was born is given. Those bands don't even have to be that obscure.

i would say: don't pick something based on guessing.

Unrelated question: Will there be a special theme for the 250th game?

You'd have to be pretty dim not to be able to work this out. :lol:

Don't say that. I am unusually good with numbers, but I have met a lot of people who aren't. A girl in my high school class couldn't work out 4*9 on her own the day she didn't have her pocket calculator with her. I know, because she asked me what the answer was. She then asked about 2*9, at which point I turned around and asked what she thought it was. She looked very unsure when she suggested it was 18 and was relieved to get it confirmed.

And this was someone with really good grades.

General skill in other areas aren't necessarily correlated with good arithmetic skills.

I have to disagree with you Markus. Calculating how many years have elapsed since a particular date or being able to multiply two numbers (the ones you quote don't even need a calculation, surely they are learned by rote at a young age?) isn't a a reflection of having good arithmetic skills. It is just very basic arithmetic that everyone should understand unless there is some medical condition that prevents it.

Not math, there's special education discussions. :shrug:
