Just in case my readers didn’t know this, I would like to state plainly and clearly so that there can be no misunderstanding: Passing along chain letters will not make you any money. Not now, not ever.
An interesting fact about October 2010:
This OCT. has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays, all in 1 month. It happens once in 823 years. These are considered money bags months. Pass them to 8 good people and money will appear. Based on Chinese fengshui.
Whoever stops this will experience none
I stopped it, bad grammar and all. I will experience none.
I did not pass the chain letter along to 8 good people. Or 8 bad ones. Or even 8 indifferent ones. The only way I ever pass along chain letters is when I respond to someone who has sent them to me. There are generally insults about the sender’s intelligence involved. And maybe a swear or three.
And what do you know: This chain letter has made the rounds before.
This message is just a revamped version of another “interesting fact” that circulated earlier in the year that informed recipients that August 2010 was special because it boasted 5 Sundays, 5 Mondays and 5 Tuesdays. The August version also falsely claimed that the “event” only took place once every 823 years.
In fact, any month that has 31 days will have three consecutive days that occur five times in the month. Such combinations are commonplace and occur each and every year. For example, October 2011 will have 5 Saturdays, 5 Sundays and 5 Mondays.
Huh. Imagine that. A chain email with wrong information. Who’da thunk it?
Oh. Wait. I would.
