Someone wished me a “happy longest day” today.
I told them that today was the same length as any other day.
Either 86,400 seconds,
or 23.934 hours
depending upon how you figure it.
They wanted to know about night.
I told them if they wanted to add hours to the day to observe something they wanted to call ‘night’ it would mess up the calendar. It would be better if they scheduled their ‘night’ at som point during the day. For example, ‘night’ could start at noon and last for 8 hours.
I haven’t heard back from them, but that was only a few minutes ago.
