Did You Know #3 - Getting Older Faster

Did you know that the March 11, 2011 9.0 Magnitude earthquake that shook the northern part of the main Japanese island was soooooooo violent…

How violent was it?

It was so violent that it actually increased the rotation speed of Earth—which means that our day was shortened by 1.8 microseconds.

That means that you and I are getting older faster.

It also means we will "live longer", but since we are talking about 1.8 microseconds per year, you won’t live long enough to enjoy the longer life.

I know… I love the near paradoxical elements to life.

I love the spinning Earth above - interesting how it's flat. I had always suspected.

Kanpai,

  1. Amazing to think our days use to be 23hrs instead of the now 24hrs.
