Beware! It's a Cyber World: Explanation -- Chinese Feng Shui Money Bag for October 2012
This message, which has been circulating via social networking websites as well as email, claims to reveal an "interesting fact" about October 2012 in that the month has 5 Mondays, 5 Tuesdays and 5 Wednesdays. The message claims, on the basis of Chinese Feng Shui Money Bag Theory, that this particular combination of days in October only happens once in every 823 years.
It's just a hoax even though it is completely right that October 2012 has 5 Mondays, 5 Tuesdays and 5 Wednesdays; but, such a combination happens far more often than every 823 years. The message is just a reshaped version of very similar - and equally erroneous and baseless - messages about October 2010 and July 2011.
