Bonus. How old are you?
Not only the time I was able to calculate in different ways. It turns out that the human age is not all that easy. In many cultures of East Asia, the human age is calculated according to your system. The calculation goes from one and not from zero. A newborn baby already has a year. The age increases with the arrival of the new year and not the birthday, that is to say, according to this system, on the arrival of the new year, all the family gathered at the festive table simultaneously will be one year more. And it turns out that the age of an asian may differ in a couple of years of age of a european, even if they were born on the same day.
