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

Kinda interesting - read on!

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

from http://urbanlegends.about.com/od/errata/ss/5-Fridays-5-Saturdays-5-Sundays.htm

"It's true that the month of July 2011 will have five Fridays, five Saturdays, and five Sundays, but as I've pointed out before (http://urbanlegends.about.com/b/2010/10/13/hoax-an-interesting-fact-about-oct-2010.htm) this is not at all a rare circumstance, let alone one that only happens once every 823 years. Any 31-day month that begins on a Friday will have five Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. The last time this occurred was October 2010; the next time it will occur (after July 2011) is March 2013."

Snopes (http://www.snopes.com/inboxer/trivia/fivedays.asp) is another good source to "verify" urban legends.

I don't know about where you are, but in indianapolis glass repair (http://www.angieslist.com/companylist/indianapolis/auto-glass.htm) isn't the business to be in if you want to be a "money bags". ;) I will say, however, that having a month with five paydays was nice. I suppose that's as close to feeling like a "money bags" as I'll get any time soon!

Come on already. It was just to point out the stuff people fall for.
