Then maybe I'll be able to get everything done!
This is a fascinating topic. Its called tidal breaking. The moon tries to pull the bulging high tide below it in the opposite direction as it tries to rotate away from the moon, slowing the entire earth's rotation in the process. Eventually we will be tidally locked to the moon just like it is locked to us now. At that point far in the future, the days will stop lengthening and one poor side of the earth will never face the moon again
I'm sorry, but days have not been defined by the movement of celestial bodies for ages. We will still have 24 hours in a day, because ALL calendar calculation is built off of clock-time, not stupid subjective celestial motion time.
Wait nvm, this is Yahoo! news, so of course they're going to put up something dumb.
