Chiles 8.8 Earthquake, makes Days on Earth Shorter by 1.26 microseconds...

Damn you science! You have proved something so pointless it blows my mind. I feel sorry for the guys who calculated that... What a waist of brain power. :)

OMG. LOST TIME. WHATEVER WILL WE DO.

You know... after enough time, that will eventually add up... to a full second!

Actually it's 1.26 milliseconds, which makes the difference a second in 2 years. That's probably pretty significant for things that rely on precise timing. Not to mention that we'll be saying happy new year too late.

Edit: Apparently it really is about microseconds, so your link is wrong :p

I wish we would get rid of Daylight Savings Time. It's a fucking sham anyway.

Damn right it is. Daylight savings achieves nothing and annoys a lot of people, and it means that once a year I don't get enough sleep. Anyway, who gives a shit if we've lost a second? Time won't actually be passing any faster, my life will still last exactly as long as it would have done regardless, there will be absolutely no practical difference. Go to hell, Chile and your supposed impact on the rest of the world.
I hope I am a good enough writer that some day dwarves kill me and drink my blood for wisdom.

Should we start bracing for the impact of telethons and charity appeals or did the world use its supply of give a fuck on the niglets in Haiti? Apparently there are still over a million "people" in Haiti homeless, which I personally consider as the country being back to normal, along with the constant gang wars, murders, raping and otherwise shitty attitudes and behaviours that those skull fucking dickheads in Haiti persist in. Can we napalm them yet?

It would save a lot of time, the fire would burn up the smell and nobody would have to waste time burying them or feeling really bad that we didn't because they'd be ready cremated. If you're not keen on the napalm idea though, we could always nuke the fuckers. Once that's done, we could use their glowing corpses for fuel in a nuclear power plant, which would finally get some use out of the lazy fucking, thieving, child-raping bastards.

Controversial words there...What have you been reading lately? The Qur'an?

And before you say "The Bible", remember thieving and child-raping was the norm back then.

1.26 microseconds.... well done but who really could give a crap. Isn't it funny how the loud violent "Islamic" minority (notice the marks around the word Islamic) believe that they are what prophet muhammed (PBUH) described in the qu'ran the sooner they realize what they do is haram (bad) the better for all of us decent Muslims out there... goes to show the words of good are lost upon some.

They say the future is only as predictable as the past..... Probably because they're the same thing.

I really hope you're just trolling and not actually that ignorant.

Of course he's trolling, have you not met him?

And before you say "The Bible", remember thieving and child-raping was the norm back then.

Trolling to Haiti, and none of us are from Haiti, so no harm done. If Haiti wants a free cookie, they have to show up like the rest of us.

1.26 microseconds.... well done but who really could give a crap.

They can blame God, The Pope, Bush... anyone they want, but it's obvious Nature wants these dirty people dead. The only thing Haiti ever accomplished was more illegal drug trading and yanking money out of everyone else's hands. I'd rather hold global fund raising for Neanderthal support groups.
