Why I Hate Foolish Email Chain Letters


Someone sent me the following email today: “This year, December has 5 Saturdays, 5 Sundays and 5 Mondays. This only happens once every 824 years. The Chinese call it the Money Bag. Send this to all your friends. According to the legend, you will receive money in 4 days.”  

Strangely enough, a quick glance at a calendar shows that the same “rare” occurence took place in December 2007. Oh and in March 2008, August 2009, May 2010 and both January and October 2011.

Either somebody’s math is off, or a Chinese year is only 3.5 hours long. 😛
