This is amazing and creepy. The Chilean earthquake (which was the seventh most powerful earthquake in recorded history) kicked up the earth’s rotational speed so that days are now shorter. At first I thought, “Cool. I hate sunlight.” Then I realized the nights were shorter, too. It’s that whole rotating-on-its-axis thing. I hope somebody writes a really long, boring poem about this and reads it out loud to me.
