3/21 Wisahickon Hint

Thanks to Pope Gregory XIII, we now have a calendar that accounts for equinox inconvenience that would have eventually landed Easter in the chilly winter months. It’s called the Gregorian Calendar, and it takes the previous standard (the Julian calendar) and makes the year 0.0075 days shorter.

(that’s all you need for Quizzo, but here’s more fun facts):

It does this by adding February 29th every four years, unless the year is divisible by 100 (1700, 1800, 1900, etc), unless it’s also divisible by 400 (such as 2000). It made the calendar year 365.2425 days long (as opposed to the 365.25 of the Julian standard), which is as close to the 365.2422 day standard we actually have. This part isn’t on Wikipedia, but I’m pretty sure if you follow the math out, we’ll need a February 30th within the next couple of millenia.

Here’s a song called The Unicorn Song by The Irish Rovers. Sounds like something my grandmother would’ve enjoyed.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, y’all. Get sauced with the best of ‘em

“Finally! After 10,000 years, I’m free!” The first line we hear from Rita Repulsa, the villainess from one of 5-year-old-Sean’s favorite shows, Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers.

How bad does that dumpster stink if it’s been on the Moon for 100 centuries with no plumbing?
