I find few things harder to do then to figure out dates and time lengths. Thankfully, there is timeanddate.com!
This website has one of the greatest tools I have seen on the web and it is pretty fun too. The Date Duration Calculator allows you to input two dates and see how much time passed in between. For example, the first Star Wars movie was released on May 25, 1977, and the last movie was release on May 19, 2005. If I asked you to calculate how many days passed in between you would have some serious math homework. But, if you used the Date Duration Calculator, you would get a report like the image below.
