believe it or not i had an experienec like this once before too. I was reading a book and opened to the first page, and there was no table of contents. I closed it then opened it again and there was. I thought that was strange cause I swore that there wasn't. dimensional shift? who knows. its interesting though

...Or it's possible that the empty/blank page that usually follows the table of contents got stuck to the table of contents page.  It happens to me all the time, it's just static electricity.

These memories may have been created by the OP rather than experienced. I think that someone may have made an offhand joke, or was maybe even directly funning with the OP at some point. From there, the OP's mind may have created the false memories of calendars and further conversations about the 32nd of the month. I don't know if I have expressed the point very well, so I will use an example. When I was really little, my grandfather used to tell me stories about his childhood. I enjoyed them so thoroughly, and knew many of the people in those stories, that there was a point where I was not sure if they were even his stories anymore, or if some of those things happened to me. I sorted it out as I got older, but I can see where I might not have.

As for the sharks... can't help you there. If I Google them they are everywhere.

No, not retarded or suffering brain dysfunction. Simply that you became convinced in the truth of a falsehood and have (it would appear) constructed memories to support that belief (hence your 'memories' of seeing calendars with 34 day months).

Constructed (false) memories are an interesting phenomenon and call into question what we may perceive as real or history may not have existed at all.

Yep and remembering childhood memories is very difficult and is likely to be highly, highly inaccurate. though failing to find saw sharks on the internet is embarrassing.


Though that picture Her Nibs is a sawfish not a saw shark, the gill on a shark are always on the flanks, that one has spiracles and underside gills making a ray and hence a sawfish (sorry for the nerdiness)

Just because it is a mystery to YOU doesn't make it unexplained.

STORM - a must watch - caution, some profanity and may cause you to experience reason.

tongue.gif I used to work with sawfish so I know them quite well. To be fair looking up sawshark mainly brings up pics of sawfish.

This is a Japanese sawshark
You can see the gills there and the saw is slightly different.
