Circulating message claims that August 2014 will feature 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays, a phenomenon that occurs only once every 823 years. The message also claims that sharing the information will bring you money based on Chinese Feng Shui.
It is perfectly true that August 2014 has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. However, this combination occurs far more often than once every 823 years and is not at all remarkable. The last occurrence was in August 2008 while the next occurrence will take place in August 2025. Moreover, any month that has 31 days has three consecutive days that occur five times in the month. And, the claim that forwarding the message will bring good luck is superstitious nonsense.
This is the only time you see this phenomenon in your life.
August, 2014 will have 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. This happens only once every 823 years. The Chinese call it ‘Silver pockets full.’
So: send this message to your friends and in four days the money will surprise you.
Based on Chinese Feng Shui. Whoever does not transmit the message….may find themselves clueless …This Is not fun at all….
According to this message, which is traversing the interwebs at a rate of knots, a once in a lifetime calendar phenomenon will occur in August 2014. The message claims that August will have 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays, a date combination that only comes around once every 823 years.
And, claims the message, sending the information to your friends invokes ‘Silver pockets full’ Chinese Feng Shui, thus ensuring that ‘money will surprise you’ within four days.
However, the claims in the message are utter nonsense. Of course, a quick glance at the nearest calendar will reveal that August 2014 does indeed have 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. But, this combination is by no means remarkable and it occurs, far more often than once every 823 years.
Furthermore, there is nothing at all unusual about months that have such combinations of days. In fact, any month that has 31 days will have three consecutive days that occur five times in the month. Such combinations occur each and every year.
And, of course, the ‘silver pockets full’ Chinese Feng Shui connection is nothing more than superstitious drivel.
