It\’s bothered me for a while that while the equinox means that the day is exactly 12 hours long, the day is a few minutes longer than 12 hours on the equinox. The only explanation I have come up with so far is that the elevation accounts for the extra minutes. If I were at sea level the day would be 12 hours long on the equinox.

Today in 4th grade humor

4th grader 1: \”When I grow up I\’m going to be a real live physician\” (this was funnier because the three of them couldn\’t remember what physician meant)

4th grader 2: [grabbing 4th grader 1\’s belly] \”Ha! Got your small intestine!\”

4th grader 3: [sniffing at 4th grader 1]
4th grader 1: \”Why are you sniffing me?\”
4th grader 3: \”Because I\’m a real live dog detective!\”
