do your math

Well I am posting this is only slightly later than usual because I didn't even think of having anything ready for today.  Not that this is going to be anything spectacular because it isn't.  After all I have been off 5 days now and out of town since Friday.  

There is something that keeps popping up in emails that is driving me crazy and since I like proving people wrong I tell you about a little something today.  

I do not know who the idiot is that first calculated this up, though I don't think they really calculated it, they just threw a number out there thinking people wouldn't notice.  Not me.  I get curious and have to test research things.

You may have seen a junk email saying that July 2011 will have 5 Fridays Saturdays and Sundays and it wont happen for another 823 years.  I thought to my self "The way the calendar moves that just cant be right".  

It actually happened in 1994, 2005, 2011, and will happen again in 2016.  It happens between 5 and 10 years.

That sure doesn't look like 823 years to me.

See ya'll tomorrow.
