Mad scientist in a dream

I had a dream last night wherein I had apparently figured out that the days were getting a little shorter every day, infinitesimally over thousands of years. To correct this, I apparently used some kind of mega device to change the earth's rotation. It was 11 pm and still light out in the dream, and as I was explaining the reason for this, the sun was farther along its path that day than the day before as the change was settling in and "correcting itself." Odd.

Actually, the days are getting *longer* by a fraction. That's why we need leap seconds

Also, if the sun is *farther* along its path, than at the same (clock) time the day before, the day ids getting *shorter*. Lomger day means it takes longer for the sun to move across the sky.
