Dont be mislead by this statement. Its more than several months. I sent my papers 10/3/12 and received my stamp 3/29/13.
Strange world, where "several" is such a precise number that doesn't include 5 1/2.


Seems like most people instinctively consider "several" to be something along the lines of "an undefined number larger than 3". 2 being a "couple", 3 or 4 being a "few" and more than that being "several".

Interesting.
