USPS Calendar Fail

On the 31st of November, the world ends.


  1. were i potentate every month would have 30 days; then there would be a 5 or 6 days of airing of grievances, feats of strength, and dance’n.

    1. As mentioned, that’s the French Republican Calendar, but an even better suggestion is the Positivist calendar, with months of 28 days. Yes, 28 doesn’t sound like a nice round number, but it means that only one day a year (or two in leap years) are outside the month structure.

    1. And the small November inset calendar is correct as well. It’s just the large trailing numbers leading into December that are off.

      1. hardily a calendar fail as headline suggests, december, which is the page this is for, is perfectly fine.

        1. Perfectly fine, mine arsh.  This is the most thoroughly busy, confusing, factually inaccurate crap calendar I’ve ever seen.

      1. Even worse, there was a whole generation of people born in post-Revolutionary France whose *entire birth months* disappeared, so they never got to celebrate more than 12 birthdays in their lives!


  2. This is not new.  USPS, UPS, FedEx… all of them regularly invent days: Nov. 31, Oftember 18, Fringday.  This helps them get the packages delivered on time and is considered to be one of the most important innovations in the parcel delivery service since the invention of the electronic signature pad that documents the delivery in no verifiable way.
