As I recall, May of 1964 had 28 days. Maybe even more. Let's see... I know October of 1843 had 28 days.

March of 1981 originally had 28 days, but by the end of the word problem, it ended up with a deficit.

Ah - but what about October of 1582 and September 1752? As well as others, depending on what country you're in.

I may be old, but I'm not that old. I don't remember those months.

In 1992, the month from August 17th to September 17th had 28 days. I've also verified that the month from August 19th to September 19th (in the same year) had a similar number of days. Based on this discovery, I've formulated a hypothesis regarding the End of Days, which should be easily proven by analyzing a small quantity of aluminum (to see if the density has changed).

Last week was a long week. I wouldn't be surprised if that week alone had 28 days. We won't know for certain until the photographs are published, but I'm hopeful we'll be able to reclassify last week as a month (containing 28 days).

I've penciled this in blue on the ledger.

I think I've found another example, but I won't know for sure until tomorrow.
