does it bother anyone else that the months that are named after numbers are the wrong number?

sept-ember is the 9th month
oct-ober is the 10th month
nov-ember is the 11th month
dec-ember is the 12th month

whats with that

@belljar because the Romans added two months at the front of the year and didn't get around to renaming all of them. They got to Augustus then lost interest or something.

@mike it's annoying that collectively, we as humans, haven't done anything about that for thousands of years
