Time to tip the calendar, even though I don't have a great deal to talk about today. I'm deep into a chapter on invention, and I'll be looking for a couple of readers over the next few days. I'm hoping to fini it up quickly so I can turn full attention to a couple of other chapters that have been more intermittent.

One thing that I've noticed lately is that I need more than 24 hours in a day. I don't mean that I'm too busy--I mean it quite literally. I've found that I generally prefer about 8-9 hours of sleep, but also that my ideal up-time tends to be around 18 hours or so. This means, in the absence of scheduled events, that my bedtime drifts by about an hour or so every couple of days. Currently, I'm going to bed around 11 am, and waking up at about 7-8 pm. Next week, I expect I'll have drifted to early afternoon bedtimes. By midJuly, my schedule may very well be synced with the rest of the "normal" world.

My conclusion is simple. I need the earth to rotate about 8% more slowly, so as to create 26-hour days. That'd be perfect for me. I don't really feel like I need to do more in a day, but it would make it easier for me to match my internal rhythms to the external ones.

If someone could get on that for me, that'd be super.


Hey, I'm mre than eager to be a reader if you like!

Re: slowe earth rotation

Consider it done.


Make that "slower" earth rotation.

My supertyping isn't so good.

As always,

Hey, Spuerman, I was going to ask for your help on this.

I'm with you, Collin. 25 hour days would make my life better, too... I have to teach 2 days a week, but over the weekend, I find myself staying up later (and getting up later) every day...

That should "Chuck." I'm typing on five hours' sleep...

I get it. Next time someone asks the obvious question "huh, what planet are you from !?" You have an answer ready: "I don't know its name or location, only that it has a 25-hour day."

Y'all should get some sleep.
