Are you sure you aren't from Venus? – Daniel Daranas Aug 30 '10 at 11:35
    
@Daniel Google says it's 243 days in Venus. But yeah, I probably was in some other planet when I misread that page. – Amarghosh Aug 30 '10 at 12:25

I lol'd reading the title from the questions list: "I got Yearling badge in 273 days" [status-bydesign]. – Jon Seigel Aug 30 '10 at 16:58

It probably says that you have visited the site on 273 days.

Your profile says:

member for 1 year

When you hover over the "1 year," it says you joined on "2009-08-29 09:20:17Z," which is a year ago.

Yup, that's it. Don't know what I was thinking.. I knew I'd be getting yearling badge by Aug-Sep 2010, but I never realized it is that time of the year... time flies so fast...! – Amarghosh Aug 30 '10 at 5:32
