So maybe you’ve read on the hippie news that oil drilling is changing the tilt of earth’s axis. I say this is baloney because the oil isn’t moving that far away from its original location in the crust to the surface, relatively speaking.
HOWEVER — IN OTHER NEWS — EARTHQUAKES CHANGE THE EARTH’S AXIAL TILT.
This is kind of old news, like Chile-earthquake-era news, but I’ve been thinking pretty hard about it. Like, we’re losing microseconds every year. And every earthquake changes the number of microseconds. Because the EARTH IS UNSTABLE IN THE UNIVERSE. IT CAN SHIFT. WTF. I know the universe is expanding and stuff.. but I thought we were pretty stable otherwise. (Could a huge earthquake make us fly out of orbit? How about a universe-quake?)
What does this mean about our daylength? Did the Romans have longer days than we do? When we say life-expectancy has increased since the industrial revolution, is it a farce because our days have simply gotten shorter?
Am I aging more quickly now than when I was born? Do I have greater or fewer days until death?
When am I going to die?
If the earth is gonna be shifting around, how am I supposed to keep track of anything? When is it going to be summer?
Answer my questions, please.
