What do you think the world and society would be like if people born on Leap Day actually only aged every 4 years? For example you'd stay in the form of a 1 year old over a 4 year time period.

Do you think the world would be Chaotic or the same?
Do you think people would only try to have children on that day to prevent them from growing up quickly?

I personally think the world would be full of anger or sadness. I feel like people that age each year would be envious of the Leap day people for not having as much time.

I'm Good. Living four times as long as a normal person. falling in love and watching them grow old as they die off. living with that feeling till you die in the next 100 years, or even falling in love again just to have it happen again.

Perhaps, leap-year borned people could fall in love with each other. Problem solved. lol

It would be pretty cool, but you'd have to be like 84 before you can drink alcoholic beverages.

given the odds that someone will be born on that 1 day ... 1 out of 1460 / days

and given about 361,000 births each day...


the ratio of 361,000 to 527,060,000 is made...

so its got a very low impact on society

they'd make great archives as a job ^

hmm Idk if I would want to have my kids on that day. first off it would mean I would be raising them for the rest of my life and well, that would just kinda suck. Also they would spend their extended lives having to watch as all their loved ones passed away while time moved at a crawl for them. On top of that imagine if they had kids on a day besides leap year; since average age of death is around 70ish then that means they would live for around 280 years, just imagine how many generations of children and grandchildren they would outlive. that'd just be too painful.

But what if the world changed in a sense that rarely anybody actually gave birth within the 4 normal years.
Then 9 months before Leap Day happened everyone instantly tried in hope of having a baby? Wouldn't it create a huge impact?

Meh. People are already born richer, stronger, smarter, or more privileged. Is that really so different than being born with more time? I suspect things would be pretty much the same (except for the fact that, you know, all of space, time, and physics as we know it would be completely different for this to be possible. But I'll leave that aside). Plus, I feel like I'd get bored after a couple hundred years. Nope, I reckon people will be people regardless of how long they live.
