THIS IS THE ONLY TIME WE WILL SEE AND LIVE THIS EVENT
Calendar for July 2011

Money Bags

This year, July has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. This happens
once every 823 years. This is called money bags.

This year we're going to experience four unusual dates.

1/1/11, 1/11/11, 11/1/11, 11/11/11 and that's not all...

Take the last two digits of the year in which you were born - now add
the age you will be this year. The results will be 111 for everyone in whole world. This is the year of
the Money!!!

The proverb goes that if you send this to eight good friends money will
appear in next four days as it is explained in Chinese FENGSHUI.

Hmm my son was born in 2001 and was 10 this year, that doesn't make 111.

two thousand and 1 as in year 101+ age 10 = 111. do you get it?
Where on earth do you get year 101 from?

"Take the last two digits of the year in which you were born - now add
the age you will be this year. The results will be 111 for everyone in whole world."

Let's work through this together, in simple terms. The last 2 digits of 2001 are 01. Not 101, not 42, but 01. Therefore the silly adding thing above doesn't work.

So it's actually - Take the last two digits of the year in which you were born "01" + now add the age you will be this year "10" = 11 not 111

If you need to understand you have to think like a mathematical genius.

for an e.g people born in year 2002 would be 9yrs old so the year is not 2002 but 102 as the years are in hundrebs not thousands then + the age which is 9 and this is 111.

Now do you get it?

Dull, but NOT true. :D

May I suggest you take a look at a calendar for July 2016? Or for July 2005?

Any 31-day month that begins on a Friday will have five Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Don't ask me. I didn't read it. I only cut and pasted it from a chain e-mail that said send to eight friends or your balls will drop off.
