Assuming that you don't know anyone else's birthday, and that birthdays are uniformly distributed throughout a 365 day year, what position in line gives you the best chance of being the first duplicate birthday?

Biggest Loser

In the most recent Biggest Loser competition, the contestants had to arrange the order of five dishes from least calories to most.  If they did it blind-folded, how many different ways could the food be arranged?

But let's say they have some knowledge about a couple of the dishes.  They know the plate of hamburger (loaded with everything) and chips should be near the top, while the plate of broccoli should be near the bottom of the scale.  How does that affect the number of choices?
