First, a note that i'm pretty impressed with myself for being able to keep up with this on a daily basis so far. it's not often i follow through with something that really has no benefit.
Why is february shorter than all the other months? I mean i'm sure there's a real reason that i don't care to look up right now, but who pissed off who? You think some roman guy named februar was a total dick to the other romans, but he invented something awesome like a manhole cover or something. So he needed a month named after him, but they were like to hell with that guy, give him 28 days when everyone else gets 30-31.
But years later when we realized we needed a leap year, we all felt bad that februar was gettin screwed every year.
