    How many hours are there in a day? Answer pg 2

    The http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...tes-there.html thread had me thinking. Here is another question. How many hours are there in a day?

    I will give this a few days to see if you come up with the correct response.
    Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.

    24.016 if you don't count leap years (distributing the 1 extra day over the course of 4 years), otherwise 24... what's your point?

    It’s to late in the day and my mind is not at full throttle but
    if you are in one spot then the answer would be 24 but
    that would be the obvious answer which would make it wrong.
    So the correct answer would be each time zone around the
    earth times 24 would be the correct answer.
    So some one else can do the math on that.

    That would depend on the time of year and your geographic location.

    I don’t know but when I was in the military it seemed like 26 hours in a day and 8 days in a week but I could be wrong.

    Depending on which way you were traveling, that could have easily been true. Seems like we caught our share of extra long watches, skipped Sundays or extra Mondays. Jeez I hated those time changes.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    How do you define "day"? It's a misleading question.

    1 sidereal day = 23.9344696 hours. Sidereal time is a measure of the position of the Earth in its rotation around its axis.

    For a very comprehensive definition you can check out this article:
    Sidereal time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    When it gets hotter outside, I think they come with a hole in the bottom. They just don't seem to last as long.
