    Link: Chilean Quake May Have Shortened Earth`s Days - Uh oh. The Feb 27 8.8 earthquake in Chile may have shortened the length of each Earth day. We`re all gonna die?

    "wateva x i think you`re gonna get a lot of hate comments."

    Nothing new there my dear.
    Where exactly does it state in that article there`s a possibility that this could cause the world to end. Days are simply shorter. We`ve not been knocked out of our orbit and spiralling into the sun. The days are simply shorter. The `We`re all gonna die?` in the caption is just silly.
    Even if the world does end there`s feck we can do about it, so put a sock in it and get on with your life instead of wondering when it`s going to end.

    If we need to reverse it, all we need to do is fly around the earth really fast a few times!

    Well that`s what superman taught me anyway...

    1.26 microseconds. So we will lose just over a second every million years. What`s the point in even working that out? Richard Gross should find something better to do.

    If it had been shortened like an hour or something, I might care.

    As it stands, I don`t.

    Oh CRAP! We`ll loose a second or so every million years!

    I hate to break it to these guys, but the Sun will asplode and engulf the Earth long before that has any significance.

    Just as long as I see payment for that second in my pay-slip, I won`t make a fuss.

    You know whats super funny about this? They said the pole shifting theory about 2012 was nothing to be scared of. They said that it would happen and no one would really notice much of a change. this shift was a VERY MINOR change, imagine a large one that scientists say we are LONG over due for.
