Our thoughts create our reality – where we put our focus is the direction we tend to go.
Peter McWilliams

Who would have thunk it?
Useless facts until you need useless facts.

Charles Fort was one of the first writers to use the phrase Teleportation in his writings in 1931, where he also wrote about frogs raining down from the skies and ball lightning and spontaneous combustion. It soon became a trend, and everyone was using the term before long, from Buck Rogers to the Twilight Zone.

Next time, carefully point a pocket laser pointer to the skies! You might blind an astronaut on the international space station!

Once every 12 hours for eight minutes …. ants take a rest.

The earth is not flat, but it’s not perfectly round.

Do you know how we are always moaning that there is never enough time in the day?

Our days are getting longer! Throughout millions of years, the earth’s rotation has been slowing down, adding roughly 2.3 milliseconds to the length of every day every century. Maybe not a lot these days, but less is more, as they say, and it all adds up. Considering that 4.6 billion years ago, the day was only 6 hours long! Now then, looking at, say, 620 million years ago, the day was 21.9 hours, up from the previous 19 hours!

We are currently accustomed to a 24-hour day. However, this is also increasing by 1.7 milliseconds each day every century! So in one million years, our days will be 25 hours long!! Woot woot, right!

I know, right!
Who would have thunk it?

Wishing all you great folks a fabulous day!
