The Unusual yet Helpful Use of Our Fists


We may use our fists in a variety of ways, but in this tip that I am going to share, you will realize that it is a clever idea. You read it right because you can use your fist in an incredible way that will help you a lot in your accounting subjects.

Our hands are an excellent part of our body, and our fists are just as great. Our fists have played a crucial role in shaping our world and facilitating survival. From the earliest days of humanity to the modern age, the uses of our fists have evolved and adapted, making them an indispensable part of our daily lives. Yes, that's true. 

So we must really take care of our hands the same way as we care for our face or ourselves because our fists influence our daily lives in a lot of ways better than we realize, and this is something that I truly find genuinely amazing. I, for one, was amazed when I learned about it. 

So from the incredible versatility and the vital roles they play such as in making use of basic gestures to mastering complex skills, we can also use our fist to determine the number of days in every month. Yes, there's a trick for that, and now, here's the big thing.

Just close your fists and then put them together like this:

You may see something like these that look like mountains. They're actually called knuckles.

On the other side, you may also see some upward curves that are called cleft.
Useful Tips on Fists

Remember this: Each of these knuckles and each of these clefts represents a month, including the number of days in that particular month.

If the month falls on a knuckle, it means that the month has 31 days. Meanwhile, if it falls on a cleft, then you may say to yourself that the month has 30 or fewer days, such as in February which is either 28 or 29 days, depending on the year, whether it's a leap year or not.

If you are wondering how it works, just see the pictures below carefully, and have it analyzed just like how you analyze those complex and comprehensive accounting problems. But don't worry; it is a much easier one.

Amazing Use of Fist

To make it short, those months that fall in knuckles are January, March, May, July, August, October, December and they all have 31 days. Consequently, those months that fall between those knuckles represent February, which has 28 or 29 days, and April, June, September, and November, which has 30 days.

Did I just make you smile? I hope you liked it.


Indeed, our fists are an integral part of human existence, helping us confidently in this world we live in. Whether for communication, self-defense, or expressing our creativity, the fist's power extends far beyond its physical form, and in fact, one of the amazing things it also gives is what we just learned in this article. It's not magic. It's just a naturally fantastic trick, and I hope that this will help you as well in your future endeavors.
