Which calendar system?

Thanks to a friend for pointing Ol' Myrt to this gifted cartoonist Randall Munroe at Randall is sorta a techie version of Gary Larson (The Far Side.) After clicking around a number of Randall's sketches, I discovered this one, and just had to share it with my DearREADERS.

Randall clearly labels his work as: "Warning: this comic occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors)." His work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 2.5 License.

Search Randall's archives for Julian (as in Julian or Gregorian calendar) and you'll find a particularly telling story of yogurt.

Happy family tree climbing!
