Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but its just one of those things that irks me.

How exactly old is Winry?

From what I've seen, it seems to be it's assumed that she was born sometime between Ed and Al. And while I don't have any reason to deny it, is this actually PROVEN, or is it merely speculation? I don't have much to go on, since I haven't read any Manga at all yet (I got off my ass and ordered a few volumes, what use is having a $330 a week paycheck if I spend less than $20 a week?). So if it's blantanly obvious in there, yeah, go ahead and smack me with a wrench.

On a totally unrealted note, a few weeks ago, someone made a post about a dayum nice pocket watch on eBay...I got mine a few days ago, and I am SO in love with it. Did anyone else shove out the $60 something to get one? I was so happy when I got it, I was holding the thing wrong when I set the time, and when I looked at it a few hours later at work, I was all, "WTF?" So yeah, set it first, THEN have a joygasm over the sheer awsomeness XD

I got my pocket watch for $30... not the official one but it's so much nicer. And cheaper.

And Winry is older than Ed but not by a full year I don't think. Just a bit older. According to the dub, anyways. Hughes makes the comment that Winry is Ed and Al's "big sister" figure. Which, I'm sure they wouldn't add that in if it wasn't official. Fans would murder them.

I noticed that too, but wasn't sure if it was enough to go on. Dubs, no matter how good they might be, always manage to screw SOMETHING up somewhere, and you can't really count on subs 100% either.

My friend got one of the $30 watches, and it's a bit smaller and obviously cheaper than mine is. Worth every penny, I think, especially since I don't spend money THAT often. $60-70 is less than a single DAYs pay for me. Somedays I'm the cheap bastard, others it's gotta be the best.

My $30 watch is actually bigger than the usual ones... bit more detailed and such. Bang on replication, I must say. Not that I cosplay or anything, it was just something for my parents to get me for a holiday. Carried it around all summer when I worked in Washington, DC. Helped me keep track of time since I'm number dyslexic and have a hard time reading digital screens. Went off in the subway metal detectors, though... something about the composition. Wonder if there is a way to figure out what the different replications are made of... huh. Something to think about. I'll quit rambling.

In the Capitol building, underground, there is a small "subway" that carries people from the Rayburn building to the Capitol. It only ever went off when I went through that metal detector to get on the subway never the one that I simply had to walk through to walk beside the track.

Went off when I entered the Ford building, too...

Heh. They added so much more pointless changes in the dub that fans would murder them for; a "Big sister" comment is small potatoes.

Even so, the "Big sister" position could still just be figurative.

I believe she and Ed are the same age.
