I think twice when I've to select the month in some online form ... does 11 means Nov or Dec?

    That's easy, Novem means nine, Decem means ten, so November is eleven and December 12. %-)

    October comes from Octo, therefore the Octobear has 8 edges and is the 8th Month of the year.

    but cause we are speaking about meatspace interaction, 12 is december cause humans usually start to count at 1

    Months start at 1, an array holding months starts at 0.

    months = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12]

    puts months[11] == 12 ? "December" : "fuck this shit"

    What will it print?

    @mundo03 is correct. Anyone who represents December as 11 anywhere that is human-readable has a special place reserved for them in developer hell.
