Eddie worked through this quite well - but terms like "first cousin" and "cousin once removed" can be tricky - I'm not sure they mean the same thing in different parts of the country.

Never heard of this web series, and the only HBO show I know about is Westworld. I'll ATA.

The Islamic calendar is also a lunar calendar but they don't factor in leap years, which is why Ramadan moves through the calendar year.

In a leap year, the month of Adar is replaced with two months, Adar Alef and Adar Bet. I'd call Adar Bet the leap month. If you die during Adar in a regular year, your relatives observe your Yahrzeit in leap years during Adar Alef, not Adar Bet.
