I know that when people complain that "there are not enough hours in the day", it is usually only semi-serious. But to ask that the Earth and the Sun change their cycles to accomodate your business demands, your education, your children's extracurricular activities -- is the height of small-mindedness and arrogance. Night and day are as they are, always have been, and always will be*; discontent with them is a sign of a distorted view of reality.

*Okay, the sticklers will chime in here to tell me that the day is lengthening over time due to tidal friction with the moon. But this amounts to all of 1 second every 50,000 years, small enough to safely be ignored as far as human civilization is concerned.
