    Errrmmmm.... It's got my Earth age wrong! It's says I'm 34.7 years old. My DOB is 28/04/1976 (which I have entered correctly) which makes me 36.7 years old. It knows when my next birthday is though.

    Edit - Actually it's getting everyone I've just tried wrong. Me and my wife are two years out and both my kids are one year out.

    I got it wrong first time too @Jawloms. You need to put the month first... the date is in US for mat MM DD YYYY, not UK format.

    Here's mine:
    What is your age.jpg

    I do think my Plutonian age is wrong compared to others as it is the furthest planet away from Earth so should produce the oldest age?

    No it should produce the youngest age as it does. It takes longer for Pluto to complete 1 Earth Year orbit of the sun so the result will be significantly smaller than the earth result.

    Quite so. Pluto was discovered by Clyde William Tombaugh on 18th February 1930. It takes 230 years to complete one orbit of The Sun. Pluto has another 17 Earth years to go before one Plutonian year [One complete orbit of The Sun by Pluto] has passed since its discovery.
