When I'm bored, I tend to notice weird things...

Since they've been posted so much, I would assume everyone's seen the Kids OVA, but I'll cut this just in case...

So we all know it's Ed's 100th birthday, yadda yadda....

Outside, the grass is green, and the trees are in bloom...so it's either mid-late spring or summer.

But wait...Ed's birthday is in the winter!  WTFH?

So, plausible reasonings?  I doubt they're south of the equator.  Do we have a plot hole on our hands, or is the Gate screwy with the timeline between worlds and Ed just adjusted his birthday accordingly or something like that?

And other comments regarding it while I'm here....

He's in damn good shapre for 100 too...still got color in his hair even (curses mother's lineage for the prematurely greying genes....and ironically, my dad's side is the type that DOESN'T get grey; he has very few at 50, and even HIS dad still didn't have too much greying into his 70's...)

Not to mention that automail is 80+ years old, and still functining...Winry would be proud XD

In the past, I've seen people wonder how his grandkids are such little look-alikes.  My mother cousins daughter whom I met like 10 years ago at a reuinion, looked EXACTLY like me.  If it weren't for the nametags, no one but our parents could tell us apart.  We were only blood related though our GREAT Grandparents.  I also look very much like my father, who isn't even related to her at all.  So while it's not exactly common, you CAN have little clones running in families, even generations later and with mixed bloodlines. 

Okay, so it's a longshot to have it happen like that all at once, but it's anime...they break the rules about this crap all the time.

I'll shut my trap now.

I was thinking all that too. After watching it I sat there like "Wtf?" for ten minutes.
Another thing to add: Edward, in his world, was born in the VERY late 1800s or the VERY early 1900s. It says that he turns 100 in 2005, right? I know for a fact that he wasn't born in 1905, because it's 1914 in his world in the Fullmetal Vs. Flame episode. And I doubt he was nine.
... Like stated. WTF?

That has to do with the difference in dates. If you remember, when he goes through the Gate in 1914, he ends up at the end in Munich, 1921 (despite going through to London, 1916 the first time). So it actually makes a lot of sense that Ed would be 100 in 2005, if there's a seven year difference, and he was born in late 1898/early 1899 in his own timeline.

As for the season, Ed seems to be born in late winter/early spring, when it's possible for it to be rainy, snowy, or absolutely gorgeous. Just depends on what area of the world you're in/what sort of year it'll be, weather-wise.

...yes, I think too much about these things. ^^;;

Oh. Forgot to add; our dates are based in the Anno Domini system (based on the Birth of Christ), while Ed's is probably based on some other sort of significant date based a few years after the Birth of Christ. Thus, the differences in years.
