Study Determines Earth Will Have 25-Hour Days in 200M Years: A new study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that in about another 200 million years, a day on our planet Earth will be 25 hours long - all because our moon is slowly inching further away from the Earth.
Hell, it doesn’t matter, even with that extra hour, I still won't get anything done. I don’t know about you, but I’m heading down to the patent office to take out that patent on the “25-Hour Clock.” One thing’s for sure, its gonna take some time to get used to saying “meet me at 13 o’clock." And wonder if we’ll still have to set our damn clocks back every fall?
And get ready for the 45-hour work-week - gee, thanks Moon. Sounds like a trick to beat us out of overtime. Hopefully, in another 200 million years - I’ll finally have enough money saved to be able to retire. That said, I’m guessing this won’t mean Congress will be working any extra hours.
I just feel sorry for all the businesses who’ll be forced to buy all new signs that read : Open 25/7. And what’s gonna happen to places like 24 Hour Fitness? On the other hand, Chicago’s old song “25 or 6 to 4” will still be valid - so there’s that.
On a positive note, at least we have 200 million years to figure it all out and adjust our schedules accordingly. Ah, who am I kidding? In 200 million years, the only things that’ll still be around will be Keith Richards and the cockroaches. Keith will be like, “you know back when I was a kid - the days were only 24 hours long.”
