CRAP !!
the Chinese calendar actually recognizes 12-year intervals. the 12 years in
the cycle are represented by the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake,
horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig.
thus, people born in 1960 and 1972 were born in the year of the rat.
incidentally, the year 2005 translates to the Chinese year 4702-4703.
