Remember, it is not that you are making mistakes typing, it is the keys fault. They keep moving around and jumping under the wrong fingers.

Doesn't anyone check to see if things are true before pasting them on FaceBook? Three of my cousins posted this today:


It's bogus Next time that happens in August is in 2025. It will happen in May next year.

Feng Shui? Since when has Feng Shui been about chain letters? The Chinese had a 10 day week, so if this is Chinese, it isn't all that old. Aarg!

snopes.com: Urban Legends Reference Pages is you friend.

Gotta love it. I remember a convoluted set of calculations based on the year number with adding, multiplying and dividing that resulted in your age. The caution was that THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR THIS WILL EVER WORK! Rubbish. All you had to do was change one number in the calculation and it would work every year.

This reminds me of the Golden Numbers used to calculate when Easter falls. When I was twelve my grandmother bought me a copy of the Book of Common Prayer - then the form of service used in the Church of England - which gave the calculations. Maths not being my strong point I sat through the sermons on 2 consequetive Sundays trying to work out when the Easter eggs would start arriving before deciding it would be easier to look in my diary.

Easy peasy! Easter falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the vernal equinox.

I learned that as a teenager. And the earliest it can fall on is March 22nd.
