No it doesn’t. Total rubbish. It happened in 1998 and 2004.

Boy, are you in for a surprise in May 2011, Jan. 2012, and December 2013…

No it doesn’t, it happens whenever the month of August starts on a Sunday, and that happens every seven years, on average. How do these ridiculous things get started?

It happened in 2004

How do you explain March 2009?

Even August 2004 had 5 sundays, 5 Mondays, and 5 Tuesdays – all in one month.. Just chk it!! it doesn’t happen once in 823 years.. even August 2021 will have 5 sundays, 5 Mondays, and 5 Tuesdays – all in one month.

Dagnit, Gavin – looks like his tidbit was wrong. 🙂

What about Aug 2013 when it has three Thur, Fri, and Sat?

As the posting clearly indicates, the “fact” about August 2010 is a hoax/not true.

It happens every 11 years not 823 years, check aug-1999, aug-10, aug-21, aug-32 and so on.

Yes – as the posting clearly indicates, the “fact” about August 2010 is a hoax/not true.

Aug-04, aug-26 also has 5 sundays, 5 mondays and 5 tuesdays along with aug 21

Yeah – as the posting clearly indicates, the “fact” about August 2010 is a hoax/not true.

May of 2011 has 5 Sundays, Mondays & Tuesdays

It does not happen every 11 years. On average it happens every 7 years for any specific month.

Basically any 31-day month has 5 of whatever the first three days are. Thus any 31-day month starting on a Sunday will have 5 Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays.

Since there are 7 days in a week the chance of a month starting on a Sunday is 1 in 7.

It does not happen every 7 years because of leap years. There is 11 years to the next one (2021) but only 6 to the next (2027) and 5 to the even after that (2032).

If you are not fussy about the month, then since there are 7 months in the year with 31 days, on average 1 month a year will have 5 Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays.

It happens whenever a month with 31 days starts on a Sunday! Where does this stuff start…Dumbasses.

Exactly!
