Time really is an illusion . . .

It is well established that I enjoy historical research and celebrating birthdays.  Anyone that spends time delving in the past confronts the problem of accuracy with dates.  The Gregorian calendar, a reform of the Julian calendar, is the most widely used calendar in the Western world; however, over half the world population does not use it.  The Mystery of the Missing Days, what does one do with the gap in time, for example:  What happened on September 10, 1752 in the English colonies or October 12th, 1582 in Europe? Hmmm, perhaps, time is only a illusion.

Today is we salute the birthday of Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia launched January 15th 2001, may researchers around the world rejoice and participate in keeping it accurate.
