5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, 5 Sundays in July 2011!!


Calendar for July 2011

Money bags

This year, July has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. This happens once every 823 years. This is called money bags. So, forward this to your friends and money will arrive within 4 days. Based on Chinese Feng Shui (aka, internet bullying :x). The one who does not forward..... will be without money....:)

Kinda interesting - read on!!!
This year we're going to experience four unusual dates.
1/1/11, 1/11/11, 11/1/11, 11/11/11 and that's not all...
Take the last two digits of the year in which you were born - now add the age you will be this year,
The results will be 111 for everyone in whole world.

Analysis: It's true that the month of July 2011 has five Fridays, five Saturdays, and five Sundays, but as I've pointed out before this is not at all a rare circumstance, let alone one that happens only once every 823 years. Any 31-day month that begins on a Friday will have five Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. The last time this occurred was October 2010; the next time it will occur (after July 2011) is March 2013.

Nor is it worth anyone's while to copy and forward chain letters promising money, good luck, or other nebulous rewards for simply passing them along. Nothing in the above texts bears any real resemblance to feng shui or any other form of Chinese mysticism. Forwarding woo-woo messages does not confer magical powers on the forwarder.

2011 does feature the unique (for this century) dates 1/1/11, 1/11/11, 11/1/11, and 11/11/11, but this has no mystical significance except in the imagination of the beholder.

Lastly, it's true that for anyone born in the last century (1900-1999), adding the two-digit year they were born (for example, '82) to the age they'll attain on their 2011 birthday (in this case, 29) will always yield the sum 111 (82 + 29 = 111). But again, there's nothing magical or mystical about this. It's always the case that when you add the year you were born to the age you turn in the current year, the sum will equal the current year: 1982 + 29 = 2011. That's simple math. When you render the birth year of someone born between 1900 and 1999 in two digits you're basically just subtracting 1900 from each side of the equation, so it becomes: 82 + 29 = 111.
