Out of the Blue

Today is the day that Daylight Saving Time ended in these parts, so we did the whole "fall forward" dealie. As stated often in the past, I prefer daylight time to standard time, but the 25 hour day is awesome... I vote for finding a way to slow the Earth's rotation to make all days 25 hours long.

Typical Hollywood nonsense in that Slow Mo Guys video. Prop grenades with small explosions set off remotely, and gasoline-fueled fireballs on the side of a concrete structure... But then, I wouldn't expect any less from an EA-sponsored production. There's no way corporate marketing and liability agents would let real explosives anywhere near those guys.

Yeah, you're probably right. Still, I like watching shit blow up at 2500 FPS.

Between this and his 6MB COD thread, I think we need to check his blood sugar.

Actually, the moon's gravitation pull is slowing the Earth down already. Your scenario of a 25 hour-long day will occur in 146 million years (and, because of the longer day, we will only have 350 days per year). Set your calendars!

I would love to live for very long time, but perhaps not that long.

We sprang forward over a month ago, tomorrow night we celebrate Guy Fawkes with fireworks. The public display is set off from a pier on the beach, people descend on the place to let their own fireworks off then watch the big show. Before the earthquakes I was cynical of public money spent on such things, now it feels good to have most of the city together. It will mark the three year anniversary since the earthquakes kicked off starting what turned out to be an 18 month surreal rollercoaster. At events like this the normality of it is reasuring & have noticed people are more patient with each other, something goes unsaid between adults & everyone is grateful the kids are having a good time. We are at the start of rebuilding a completely new city, it will take the good part of 15-20 years.

"fall back" (or is your time zone different?)? Just wish they'd pick one and go with it.
