Once Every 823 Years

You may wonder why I started this series of 555 posts "following the leader" and posting on political blog rather than the games one; I will get to that.

Feng Shui, I learned via the web, deals with single digit numbers. If a number has two or more digits they are added together until they become a single digit. Or 5 + 5 + 5 = 15 and 1 + 5 = 6. Thus the Facebook meme was incorrect. And eight is the number assigned to wealth and abundance. And, once every 823 years?

October 2010 had five each of Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays. Okay, that was October, not July, you stickler for details you. Except July 2022 will have five each and that is nowhere near 823 years hence. And the same meme went around the web in October 2010 (or sometime during 2010). And October's 1982, 1993, 1999, had 5 each and will have them again in 2021.

July 1948 had 5 Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Um, I was born at 5:02AM in September 1948.

People are quick to post copy and paste stuff on their Status Updates. I have not seen the 555 meme a second time. Yet. Superstitious or not, it does not hurt to have a bit of fun. Methinks the person who is having the fun is the one who creates the misinformation status updates. S/he must get a chuckle everytime they see their creation being published. Not that there is a way for them to check up on all Facebook postings, but you know what I mean.
