Missing a Day

I was glancing over at the calendar, confirming that Wednesday is July 30, when I notice something odd. July only has 30 days. Trying to confirm my suspicion that July actually has 31 days, I checked August to see when it started. Friday, August 1st. So apparently according to my calendar Thursday doesn’t really exist.

Looks like I can just slide from my “over-the-hump” day right in to the weekend this week.

Question of the Week

The other day I was thinking in the shower (not an uncommon occurrence) and an idea occurred to me. Is there a smallest discrete unit of time? Not of measurable time, but is the space between one second and another infinite like the number line? Or is there a smallest unit of time that exists?
