10 obscure facts you need to know about time

Time plays mind games with us. How? Just think about a few situations, and you’ll nod yes. Have you ever noticed when you’re hanging out with friends or someone you love, time flies like an arrow, but when you’re in a boring work meeting or reading a book, it moves slower than a three-toed sloth? I know it’s frustrating, but we can’t do much about it as it would be just a waste of time.

You can wear a watch on a wrist but can’t hold time in your hand. Sounds like the saddest truth about time. You know there are some dumb intellectuals who say time doesn’t exist, but every night before sleeping, they set alarm clocks to wake up. However, we can’t argue with them as everyone experiences time differently. Whether they are right or wrong, only time will tell. Let’s look at 10 things you need to know about time.

  • Do you know time is the most common noun in the English language? No wonder we have been obsessed with it for ages. Even man and woman stand 7th and 14th respectively in the list of most used nouns. Shockingly, nouns like play and rest are not even in the list of top 100 most used nouns. 
  • Time is the greatest teacher in the world, but we’re super busy in our lives, and we often ignore it for something else. Always remember, time and experience walk along with each other, and it takes a lot of mistakes to gain experience. Take a chill pill and learn to enjoy the journey but be careful while wandering.
  • You can’t be a master of something unless you’ve spent a considerable amount of time on it. How you spend your time and how much time you spend on something shows how much you’re interested in it. Be wise and selective when you’re walking into somewhere as it’s going to affect you, be it clubbing or a quick gossip.
  • They say you’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with. I’ve experienced this one personally. When you live like a lone wolf, you listen to what your mind speaks, but when you’re with a bunch of friends, you end up following the majority more often. Keep in mind your time is limited; learn to spend it wisely.
  • It takes Earth 23 hours, 56 minutes and 4.091 seconds to finish the one rotation so that the sun appears in the same position in the sky. Yeah, we have been fooled since school days. You can do a lot in those 3 minutes and 56 seconds. Ask someone who has missed his login time due to a minute-long red light at the traffic signal.
  • At the beginning of the age of dinosaurs (about 230 million years ago), there were 370 days in a year, and the day was just 23 hours long. Over the years, the earth has slowed down due to the tidal friction from the sun and moon, so the days are getting longer by about 1.7 milliseconds per century.
  • On a regular day, we measure time with instruments such as a clock, hourglass, sundial or calendar but do you know there are various measurement tools to measure the time? Forget the rest; the smallest standard scientific measure of time is the Planck time, which is equal to 10−44 seconds.
  • Light takes a significant amount of time to reach earth. As a result, We see the Moon as it was 1.2 seconds ago and the Sun as it was 8 minutes ago because the Moon is 384,400 km away from the earth while the Sun is about 150 million km away.
  • Space and time are fluid, thanks to the gravitational force. Also, as far as physics is concerned, there is no such thing as now. We are either living in the past or somewhere in the future.
  • What do you think? Will the time come to an end? Yes, according to some physicists, time will end within the next four billion years as the universe is on its way to expanding infinitely.
