    I am so tempted to start a thread about the syncing issue.

    It is not a myth.

    I have always wondered, though, if it's more just coincidence than anything.

    Doesn't work if two women are on the pill.

    And it isn't even a funny line. It was just presented and delivered so well that made it hilarious.

    Also ironic that a tornado did hit Missouri this week around the Branson area.

    Wow. I hated almost every bit of this episode. Cam at his drama queen worst. An absurd party. Ha ha ha, menstruating women are devils and men are afraid of them! Never saw that before. Trapezing, seriously?

    I thought the whole thing was pretty repellant.

    Then you should probably just stop watching Modern Family.

    Richardson,...
    I thought it was a solid episode, but I didn't like Cam (and he's generally one of my favorite characters). He was being a jerk. "I'll only be pleasant and nice if everything is wonderful and to my liking."

    Nope. No coincidence. I think the women release pheromones which tend to result in their periods coming at the same time. It may take a few months for it to match, and it may not be as exact as we saw in this show, but it happens.

    Because of a weak episode of the show? C'mon.

    One thing about this episode bothered me right away. And it's doesn't make sense this year, really, given the last few days...but...

    There's not much of a chance a really, really devastating tornado would hit Missouri in late January. A month later, maybe.

    Or maybe even a mostly non-destructive tornado. But a very destructive one? not much.

    THANK YOU! I've been trying to find a citation.
    I think it came down to 2 things: defining "sync," and just the count of days in a month.

    My understanding was that it was similar to the birthdays-in-a-room phenomenon. - i.e 30-ish people in a room, chances that 2 or more share the same birthday - feels impressive, but the math shows it to be normal.
