When I was younger I always had trouble remembering which months had 30 days and which months had 31 days. Especially the transition from July to August always gave me something to think about, since they both have 31 days.
Then someone gave me a simple tip. Count your knuckles.
Starting on the left of your left hand you count the highest and lowest points of your knuckles.
Add the months to it and the problem is solved. The months that end up on one of the knuckles have 31 days and the months that end up between the knuckles have 30 days. Fucking awesome tip!
Problem is, I still do this to be sure which months have 30 days and which months have 31 days.
Anyone with me in this?
