September, 1752

Did you know that the month of September got short-changed 11 days in the year 1752? Yep, you went to bed on Wednesday, September 2, and woke up on Thursday, September 14! This is because of reorganizing the Gregorian calendar or some such. Mindless trivia, I guess. It’s neat to see that the computer relays it nicely:
