If you've never programmed a computer before 2000, you probably will be confused by this:
> new Date(1, 0, 1); Tue Jan 01 1901 00:00:00 GMT+0800 (HKT)
Wha.. what? MDN's documentation says I can put the year as a number into the constructor and a JS Date can represent
-100,000,000 days to 100,000,000 days relative to 01 January, 1970 UTC. Let's see here, 1970 * 365 = 719050 days, I can't possibly have 99280950 leaps days can I?
> var d = new Date(1, 0, 1) // Put the date in as usual > d.setFullYear(1) // Now you get Jesus' birthday.
Ah hum, Jesus was born on what? BC 6 - 4?
