science is so cool.

this is pretty neat, despite the fact that its cause was a horrible and tragic natural disaster: the massive chilean earthquake of several days ago released so much energy that it may have shortened the length of the earth's day.

for reals.

a nasa scientist has been studying it says that his research suggests that the day may have been shortened by 1.26 millionths of a second!

the change in day length possibly would have been a result of a shift in the earth's axis caused by the earth quake.

for those of you who are a bit confused by this, there was an earthquake during the olympics. you were too busy watching stupid sports and cheering along national lines to notice the tragedy.
