Five little piggy’s in a row-row-row,

Quick little piggy’s don’t you Know, know, know!

You can’t pick yer numbers in a row-row-row,

If Quick little piggy’s is all you know-know-know.

                                       DUH! Quick piggies is the ONLY way!

          This year, July has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. This happens once every 823 years. This is called money bags. So, forward this to your friends and money will arrive within 4 days. Based on Chinese Feng Shui. It's definitely worth a try!!!
           
          Good luck!

          It is perfectly true that July 2011 has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. However, such a combination occurs far more often than every 823 years. The last occurrence was in July 2005 while the next occurrence will take place in July 2016. The message is just a revamped version of very similar, and equally erroneous, messages about August and October 2010.

          http://www.hoax-slayer.com/july-823-years.shtml#

          There is this this little factoid that's been spreading around the Internet that this October 2010 is the first time in 823 years that there are 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, and 5 Sundays in one month. It's not true. It happens all the time.

            Raven62,

            From a previouis post by rukiafae:

            This is only true (re: the 5 thing) if you follow the chinese calandar.

            on our calendar it happens pretty often (as many posters have shown you)

            therefore, unless you live by the chinese calandar, its just another month ; )

            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

            Lep

            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

              There are 7 months with 31 days - January, March, May, July, August, October, and December. In a 28-year period, each of these starts on a Friday 4 times. So, a month with 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, and 5 Sundays actually occurs 28 times in 28 years (7 months with thirty-one days times 4 times in 28 years) - on average, once a year, sometimes multiple times in a year. 

               

              Months with 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, and 5 Sundays in the past 28 years:

              07/2011, 10/2010, 01/2010, 05/2009, 08/2008, 12/2006, 07/2005,

              10/2004, 08/2003, 03/2002, 12/2000, 10/1999, 01/1999, 05/1998,

              08/1997, 03/1996, 12/1995, 07/1994, 10/1993, 01/1993, 05/1992,

              03/1991, 12/1989, 10/1988, 01/1988, 05/1987, 08/1986, 03/1985

              Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

              In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                  So CT, this was yet another thread about luck in that if you forward it, there would be some kind of monkey-mind Fegn Shui for you to cash in on?! Get real. The whole thing is a hoax and in fact a lie. You must be really scraping the bottom of the barrel to resort to this BS, Dunning-Kruger. Note that the good old non-Chinese calendar, TWO proofs/references by Raven is used. Your highlighted remark above is pure ignorant arrogant ego. You lack metacognitive ability: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunning%E2%80%93Kruger_effect   Herr monkey-shine.

                   

                  Raven just proved otherwise and you still will not admit error. More proofs and jokes follow. You should be working for Tepco over in Japan. Ann Coulter says radiation is good for you so maybe there is good fortune in getting a heap’n help’n. She is dead serious.

                  Get some. It could be, that ignorant arrogance has a lucky element to it if you think it is so.

                  What a flagrant violation of reality your luck is. If anything, the Feng Shui and karma from promoting this fallacy is bad joo-joo on you. Bad medicine monkey mind. This whole thread like many you posted before belongs in the mystical forum where reality is unreal in superstitions. No one needs facts there. Your bad luck on this matter is evidenced by real facts that sensible minds can grasp and are not up to superstitious interpretations. Your Monkey Mind is no match for the metacognitive and grounded thinkers.

                  It is easy to see when you make a statement as fact, that it is a lie that you wish others to also cling to. More really bad joo-joo if that is what makes your world spin. You cannot negate the bad luck that your monkey mind has made you show your foolishness and lack of wisdom in.

                  No wonder the Poles have such a bad reputation from Chicago to Milwaukee. The pivot of every Polish joke was just another way to exemplify what the Dunning-Kruger effect is all about. Tiggs and Ridge use deprecating humor the same way but you are dead serious. Dunning-Kruger serious.

                  One last thing, you don’t believe in any system in light of the power of quick picks and stats you parade around as proofs that gives you a shot at anyone who picks their own numbers. Will the rage of your Monkey mind pen a new haiku?  Now you suggest some kind of bogus rare calendar synchronicity suggests digits. There should be a forum for contradictory freaks, but thank you for the invitation for all to discuss your folly: the Dunning-Kruger Effect.

                    I fully understand what happened.  An email (or you read it on the net) says the above is true.  Other than a quest for truth, everyone (nearly everyone) forwards these things because they grab attention and are interesting trivia.

                    You already have a link or two, where you can look for the truth.  I generally go to:

                    Urban Legends Reference Pages
                    http://www.snopes.com/

                    Those that email me personally are well aware that those type of emails stop with me - I check them out and reply back with the truth.  Can Snopes or those other similar sites be wrong?  Yes but for the most part they do the research and I trust their answers considerably more than an email.

                    Is there any chance you'd like to continue with your plan/thread, even if, as it turns out it would work more often than every 823 years?

                      This thing is like a quick pig,  it happens all the time.

                      Five Fridays five saturdays five piggies.

                      A man noticed a farmer walking with three-legged pig on a leash. It looked very odd. He said, "Farmer, why are you walking a three-legged pig?"

                      "Why, stranger, this is no ordinary pig," the farmer replied. "One night our barn caught on fire, and before my wife and I even woke up, the pig had called the fire department, and herded all the other animals out of the barn. The next week, a burglar got into the house, and the pig had him tied up and the police were on their way before I even realized what had happened. Then just last week, I fell into the duck pond and was like to drown, except this pig jumped in and pulled me out. Like I say, this is no ordinary pig."

                      "Well, that truly is a remarkable pig. But tell me, how did he come to have only three legs?"

                      "Well", the farmer tells him, "A pig like that, you don't want to eat all at once."

                          What?

                          As the original e-mail that I posted was based on Chinese Feng Shui it makes sense that it was based on the Chinese calendar.

                          The Megs Millions jackpot was pumped up and I was trying to spread a little luck.

                          Then rukiafae explained about it being based on the Chinese calendar, not ours.

                          I didn't know that, and obviously neither did a lot of others who went into flame mode, giving us all a history of how many months had five of the same days pf the week.

                          So, foo koo eye quat. That means roughly "ambush two tangerines" in Vietnamesse, but for now I'll stick with what it sounds like phoenetically.

                          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                          Lep

                          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                            Spreading luck? The email indicated the only luck that would be rewarded was for those who spread the nonsense. There was nothing to signify in the text or in your initial post that a Chinese calendar was the basis for this illogical flame of reality.

                            Let’s look at the facts: NOBODY here including yourself got lucky. Therefore, Monkey mind, you and luck have nothing in common.

                            Back peddle some more, this is entertaining in the essence of your Monkey mind. As for flames, does the Monkey Mind wish to express what it sounds like phoenetically (sp)? Go spank your MM

                            The term 'feng shui' literally translates as "wind-water" in English. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feng_shui

                            It has to do with architectural order, not luck. The wind-water is running down your leg. This was an elaborate hoax that really was a study of perception by a cleaver post graduate. The idea of luck and feng shui should have tipped anyone off. They have nothing in common with the each other. The second tip was the perceived event. By any calendar, it was a joke that took a bit more metacognative effort to discern. The key word was luck; another violation of reality.

                              Well well DD it looks like you crawled out from under the rock you hide out under with whatever vermin you hang with.

                              Interesting how you cling to the term monkey mind since I brought it up.

                              Tell you what, because of your charming personality here's my wish for you, for the rest of your life, no matter what bet you make, what game you play, or what lotto ticket you buy, may you have as much luck as you believe in.

                              You're poxed.

                              No need to reply, I'm blocking you again and will never read anything from you.

                              AMF.
