hey! why'd you call my riddle stupid? And why do you want to read it, if you're just going to criticize it?

Not what I expected in the answer.

nice teaser..... i've heard it before though... that's the only reason i figured out the real seconds 31,536,000 60*60*24*365 sorry boredom rules my life right now

and comet sorry to say i don't know what you did..... you must have skipped a step.... or i'm just not reading something right..... either way oh well
Jun 17, 2002

actually Comet there are also 'leap seconds'. I dont recall exactly how they are counted, but every four years we get an extra day and a few odd seconds.

This is a very interesting + clever trick. I like it alot. Great Job!

I suppose it could be much more than 12, if you considered January twenty SECOND, thirty SECOND, and so on and so on

May 31, 2005

Jul 27, 2005
