sept 27
« on: September 27, 2012, 06:29:20 AM »
came across this bit of trivia this morning:

Even though last Saturday was the equinox, here's the weird thing: five days after the equinox today is the "longest" day of the year! If you're thinking about the sun and the earth, or time, you're barking up the wrong tree...just like statistics, and ways of reducing the deficit, there are different ways of looking at the same thing. In this case, there are a lot of ways to measure how long things are. "Thursday September twenty-seventh" is the longest day of the year!  The longest in terms of text, that is:  Thursday September twenty-seventh. Give that one to your kids!

Hardrock, may his spirit live on in all of us.....
