The Days Grow Shorter...

Confusing title, right? Well, I'll explain it, then. The massive earthquake in Chile actually moved some of the Earth's mass around, making it a little bit thinner, which caused the Earth to spin faster. That doesn't mean that one day is now 23 hours, it just skimmed 1.26 millionths of a second off the day. It'll take 2,174 years for one second to have been lost. According to my calculations, that amount of time will be 68371430399 seconds instead of the normal 68371430400 seconds it normally takes for 2,174 years to pass. After 4,348 years 136742860798 seconds will have passed, instead of the normal 136742860800 seconds, since the Chilean earthquake. That's a lot of math!
