According to my good friend Mr. Pedia (first name Wiki), “The Earth rotates once in about 24 hours with respect to the sun and once every 23 hours, 56 minutes and 4 seconds with respect to the stars.” I believe that is a false claim and will thusly take whoever made this great ball of water and other assorted stuff we call the Earth to The People’s (Celestial) Court.
(This is the same court, I’m told, that Donnie T. takes his trifling trifles every night after we’ve all gone to sleep.)
Why do I bring up this interesting information, these fascinating facts full of fun? Because in theory I should be able to get a lot more done in a full rotation of this thing we call home. But I don’t. And I’m not a lollygagger, damn it!
