“TODAY WAS LONGER than yesterday!” announced Hamilton.
“Impossible! All days are of equal lengths!” countered Professor Verniche.
“To put it scientifically – BULLSHIT! Today, was undoubtedly longer. Some days are longer than others, the same as some days are shorter than others. You can’t disprove it Verniche.”
Irritated by the impudence, Verniche grabbed a stump of white chalk and decorated, with aggressive strokes: the blackboard.
1 Day = 24 hrs To illustrate he finished with FACT! underneath.
Hamilton rose from his chair, quickly erasing Verniche’s work, then turning to him. “Sorry.”
Verniche rose to the bait. “For what?”
“For erasing your finest contribution to science in decades.”
Verniche went stony faced and crossed his arms at the first wave of laughter.
Hamilton turned back to the blackboard, deftly writing out his theory, the ksk-ksk of chalk on board filling the room.
Yesterday was a day – I worked 8 hours
Today, was longer than yesterday – I’ve worked 12 hours and had to listen to your lecture
A week ago I made love to a beautiful woman – it was a very short day, as if I was in another dimension
With confidence Hamilton finished in a flurry, recounting his own words. Therefore, although we measure time, sometimes it is immeasurable. One day can be longer than the other or vice versa!!!
For once Verniche was silent. And then the entire lecture hall stood up, shouting and applauding the best show on campus: Hamilton versus Verniche. Every Wednesday at 5pm. Lecture Hall LS.24.
