Plot Bunnies – Day 9

We hope you enjoyed yesterday’s Plot Bunnies featuring A Drinking Game Gone Bad. Continuing our project that we have planned. Each day will post something funny, weird or strange … but with some fact behind it. You can then run with it and use it for  your own inspirational purposes or just read it and do nothing the choice is yours.

 

Day 9

Lucky Number 5! This year in August we have 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays … it’s not as rare as that circulation going around saying it occurs every 823 years. But today in honoring this month with the fun days being highlighted we will talk about some other fascinating numbers.

For the record this  not so random sequence will show up for any month that has 31 days (January, March, May , July, August, October, December) … we tend to notice the Friday, Saturday and Sunday sequence more perhaps because everyone loves the weekend, it means kicking your feet up  (it does rotate, so you get Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, etc.)

We’ll take a look at the Friday, Saturday and Sunday Sequence. Do you notice a pattern?
