  • Uncommon July

    July has five Fridays, five Saturdays and five Sundays this year. Apparently, as some dumb chain letter informs me, this only happens every 800 or so years...

    :brows: enjoy... I guess...

      It amuses me how much meaning is attached to what is largely a figment of our imagination, the Julian calender. What does July 25th 2011 mean in the grand scope of things, to nature, to the rest of the multiverse?

      2000 posts! What a windbag! :biglaugh: ;) Congrats, my friend. I am having a drink in celebration of this momentous event. :grinning:

        The next one will happen in 2016. Any month with 31 days that has the first of the month starting on Friday will have Five Fridays, Five Saturdays and Five Sundays ...

        Fridays ... 1, 8, 15, 22, 29
        Saturday ... 2, 9, 16, 23, 30
        Sunday ... 3, 10, 17, 24, 31

        Chain letters are good. :applause:

          I guess they start those chain letters to prey on math simpletons like me. That was pretty easy to verify.:doh! 1:

          They also mentioned the "amazing" fact that if you add up the year of your birth and your age on this year's birthday, no matter who you are the total will be 111! They didn't get me...

            I can't say I celebrate post counts, your windbag comment is probably the most correct ;)...

              Our church has a fiscal year of November 1 to October 31. November 1 of 2009 was on a Sunday and October 31 of 2010 was also on a Sunday. That meant in that fiscal year there were 53 Sundays (I counted). Both the previous and the next fiscal years had 52 Sundays. I thought it was interesting.

                  It has been an odd July! It has been raining frequently, and everything is green and growing like crazy, or dying from mold. Typically everything around here this time of y ear has a nice crunch to it, and is brown.
