Passengers on Hawaiian Airlines’s flight 446 experienced a bit of time travel to start off their new year.

The flight, which traveled from Auckland, New Zealand to Honolulu, Hawaii, was scheduled to depart at 11:55 p.m. on
Sunday, Dec. 31, 2017. However, because of a 10-minute delay, the flight didn’t end up taking off until 12:05 a.m. on
Monday, Jan. 1, 2018.

Due to the time difference between New Zealand and Hawaii — the former is 23 hours ahead of the latter — passengers
ended up landing at 10:16 a.m., back on Dec. 31 in 2017.

The Bizarre Reason February Only Has 28 Days








No, it's not because it's terrible and everyone wants it to end immediately.

February is a terrible month. By the time it arrives, we’re sick of the cold, sick of our winter clothes, and in many cases,
just plain old sick. Fortunately, it’s a short month—just 28 days. But why?

Turns out, it’s not because everyone in the history of the human race has hated February. The month’s quirky timing dates
back to the 10-month Roman calendar, which began in March and ended in December. That’s right. For a while, January and
February didn’t even exist. To the Romans, who made their lot by planting and harvesting, winter was a nameless, dateless
slog. For part of the year, there was literally no system for keeping track of the days.

It's not every day that you come across a dog that looks like a sheep.

But for dog groomer Yoriko Hamachiyo, it's not all that unusual.

There were 11 quarterbacks selected in the 2019 NFL Draft, and Peyton Manning is really hoping one of them breaks his rookie
record.

While Manning is mostly known for his high-level play on the football field, he owns a record that not too many people want. As a
22-year-old rookie for the Colts, he threw 28 interceptions. This isn't a single-season record; that was set by George Blanda, who
threw a remarkable 42 interceptions in 1962.
