What does you're not 15 in the real world mean?

I was 5,478 days old. 15 years is 5,478 days, but millions of people ran around telling me I wasn't 15. So what does that mean? It was 2006.

Could you turn 15 on a February 29?

No, age is counted by years not days divided by 365. Every year (the the it takes the earth to orbit the sun) is 365.25 days. Leap year is every four years to account for the quarter day. If you are going to count days in the calculation of your age, you must include the one quarter of the day that isn't on the calendar but is part of an actual year.

5,478 is not divisible by 365. 5,475 is.

It is with a remainder, and my point is still valid.

No, 15 years is 15 years. In days it's 5478.75, so you round up not down, and you're still a day short.
