If you are 25 years old you are certainly not 20-25. You are 25-30. It has been 25+ years since your birth hence 25-30. Unless you are voting your response at the exact minute of your birth 25 years later then you’d have no real dilemma. I’d say wait a day, enjoy your birthday and then choose the higher bracket.

This logic makes it even worse. If it’s non inclusive and I’m 25 and I can only choose between 20-25 I don’t apply, or if I can choose between 25-30 I don’t apply. If it’s instead inclusive of the age, and I’m 25 I have two answers 20-25 includes 25, and 25-30 includes 25.

@cullers take 25-30 to mean 25.00000001 - 29.999999 years old.

I say I’m 29 years old if you ask my age but I haven’t been 29.00000 since that one instant on my birthday. I’m actually more like 29.134 years old today.

If when asked “how old are you” you answer “25” that means you are > 25.00000 years old (or getting really technical it could also be your birthday but not yet your birth minute so could be 24.9X years old as well).

So again. If it is your birthday on an age that ends in 5 and seems to conflict with the poll save yourself the dilemma and go out and enjoy your birthday. Tomorrow when you are 25.0027 years old you can safely vote 25-30.

Mathmatics vs semantics. I understand what you’re saying, but I live in a semantics realm where if someone asks how old I am I’m not going to say a fraction. I’m going to say I’m __ years old. (In reality, I’m going to tell them I don’t know. I stopped counting after 21.)

@smpratte, I’m still giving you a hard time, confusing poll is confusing.

Math is precise, language and semantics are imprecise. I say stick with the math answer.

To please both sides simply do a range of birthdays for each selection so then we can debate whether MM/DD/YYYY or DD/MM/YYYY is the better format when we all know deep down YYYY-MM-DD is the only logical choice as it sorts alphabetically and numerically in chronological order.
