comment Birthday paradox: Comparing the original version with the same-birthday-as-you version
Ok, I begin to see the idea. I think this comment is rather helpful, perhaps you want to include it into your original answer. Thank you again.

comment Birthday paradox: Comparing the original version with the same-birthday-as-you version
Thank you for your answer. I agree both are similar, yet in the case of the original paradox the falling factorial power in the numerator is growing considerable slower than $364$ to the $n$ in the other version. This is why you need $23$ in one case and $253$ in the other after all.

How do we see that the result in the first case is not valid for x<0?

comment Is there an analytic approximation to the minimum function?
I think it is off by $\frac{log 2}{k}$ when equal.
