awhile ago I receive a message from a friend saying:

“Coming October 17, 2008 the sun will rise continuously for 36 hrs (1.5 days). During this time the American countries will be dark for 1.5 days.

It will convert 3 days into 2 big days. It will happen once in 2400 yrs.
We’re very lucky to see this. Forward it to all friends.”



my first reaction was... huh???? wow!!!! cool!!! but how can that be possible???
so I searched the internet and I was looking for the confirmation...
and I was shocked that many people know about it... and they have the same reaction for it....

and there is no logical explanation!!! and I am still looking for confirmation!!!!!!!!!!

but I think it is just a rumor!!!! but it is cool to experience this once a lifetime event...(If it is true)

well, I just post it... what is your reaction about it??? have you receive such message???

Looks like just another crap chain letter to me, but whatever, believe what you will.

I heard about that everywhere. Sounds cool. Though I agree, doubt it'll happen

Searched it and found a Filipino website (?) that said this:



wooh… what an exciting news!!!

today, when i was working at my desk, i received a mail from my colleague saying,

“Coming October 17, 2008 the sun will rise continuously for 36 hrs (1.5 days). During this time the American countries will be dark for 1.5 days.

It will convert 3 days into 2 big days. It will happen once in 2400 yrs.
We’re very lucky to see this. Forward it to all friends.”

What the hell are you talking about?? Is it possible?? How?? (this was my first reaction to the mail)

I did not believe the mail. I googled and shocked to find that everyone here is talking about this news. But, I noticed one thing everywhere the text of the topic is same. I suspected whether it is a true information or someone’s imagination.

Its difficult, still i believe that above mail is true but,

If i conclude it scientifically then days and nights are due to the rotation of earth on its own axis. The speed at which earth is rotating is constant due to which our ancestors concluded 24 hours a day, 7days a week, 30days a month and 365days a year. The whole human life is dependent only on this standard calculation of earth’s speed of rotation and revolution.

Now, this can only happen if the earth stops rotating on its own axis at a point where asian countries are facing towards sun. Is it possible?? Can anyone give me one logical reason why earth will stop rotating?? Please dont say “CONSEQUENCE OF GLOBAL WARMING” as these days if rain falls more than it should be, summers become warmer then it must be, winters become colder then usually it does, people simply says “CONSEQUENCE OF GLOBAL WARMING”. sounds funny…

I guess no.. No one has any logic behind it.. so how can we guys believe that this will happen on october 17, 2008.

You know, if may be it will happen then this can lead to the end of human existance which i guess in the near future is not possible.

Above all the world’s leading aeronautics organisation NASA has no information regarding this big news. WOW NASA, you are so busy in keeping an eye on universe that you forgot whats happening on earth. hehehe….

Well guys, i feel that we should wait n watch what will happen on october 17, 2008. If the information will be true then we must honor the person who has spread this information by giving him/her a good position at NASA. If it is not then start searching for that person…..

Good bye!! see you guys on october 17, 2008

Seeing that most people confirming this are Filipinos and received the information on Filipino Forums and chain text messages, This shows that such news is only confined in the Philippines, and also since no one from other countries are confirming this, This is obviously a lie.

Load of goo goo gaa gaa....lol

Debates rage on as to whether this is true or not...

* NO -- Most people conclude NO because scientifically the Earth would actually have to stop spinning on its axis, which defies all the defined laws of physics and gravity.

* YES -- This is true... read the blog on the Related Link for more details and proof!!
