That doesn't sound right. Surely it was 3511 days ago?

I was mistaken, but this time didn't get either right probably.

East European date standard "yyyy/mm/dd" of date 2²/2³/2⁴, which is 2004/08/16, and presumably UK date 04/08/2016, so we get:

2004/08/16 start date
2016/08/04 end date

Which is 4371 days. I might mistaken again.

That's what happens if you use Calendar rather than LocalDate

Nope, you're right; I was wrong. I was thinking of n/2n/4n, for which the solution for yy/mm/dd is (I'm pretty sure) Christmas Eve 2006.
