Re: Is this the birthday fallacy?

What causes my BS meter to fly is the use of First Quarter vs "July through September". How many different ways can we group months to make the same approximation.

I think you are correct to classify it with Birth Month Fallacy. It is just worse than the birth month fallacy. It is the Birth Quarter fallacy.
