I will try to demonstrate why this Question is an interesting one
In order to illustrate the peculiarity of OCT 4th, I shall use Oracle database and SQL Langugae to demonstrate my point
Ammar>select to_date('27/1/2007','dd/mm/yyyy') SHOW_DATE from dual;
The above merely displays a date in dd/mm/yyyy format. Now let us see what happends if I try to display the result of the expression ('27/1/2007') after adding 1 to it
Ammar>select to_date('27/1/2007','dd/mm/yyyy') + 1 SHOW_DATE from dual;
Barely an surprises, the day after 27/1/2007 is 28/1/2007
Now, let me repeat the exercise for another date, namely for 4/10/1582
Ammar> select to_date('4/10/1582','dd/mm/yyyy') SHOW_DATE from dual
Let us see what the day after 04/10/1582 would be?
Ammar> select to_date('4/10/1582','dd/mm/yyyy') + 1 SHOW_DATE from dual
Say What? the date after 4/10/1582 is 15/10/1582.
This is against any logical, empirical, or interpretational result a human mind can go through, but it is TRUE, and this is not a bug in the software!!!
You may think that you need the help of extraterrestrial power, like the interactive soul engine called peter answers that i talked about before
but once you know why 15/4/1582 is the day directly after 4/10/1582, you will come to realize one important issue in our universe; If there is something that is beyond the frontiers of your comprehension, it , in no way, implies that this thing does not exist!!
afterall, there is a reason why 15/10 if after the 4th of Oct 1852
