    Who knows the Knuckles Method of determining the number of days in the month?
    My boss just heard of it recently.
    I learned it as a kid in school.

    You start with your index finger knuckle and then the "divot" in between. January, March, May, July, Aug (pinkie knuckle twice), Oct and Nov are on the knuckles and have 31 days, the "divot" months don't.
