30 Days Hath… something

If you’re trying to figure out how many days are in a month, but don’t have a calendar handy, what’s your preferred method? Do you use the familiar poem or the knuckle method (see the “Manual Calculation” section). I use the knuckle method, something I remember learning in elementary school, although I use both hands next to each other rather than starting over on the original hand.

For some more amusing “how many days in a month” poems, check out this here site.

I still did not see the version I learned in school:

Thirty days has September
April,June, and November
When short February’s done
All the rest have 31.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
