This book caused such an uprising, that the word revolution gained it's new and now common meeting.
2. It takes 365.24 days for the Earth to make a full revolution around the sun (according to the atomic clock), which is why our leap year adds another day every four years-- to make it reach 365.25. Because these numbers don't match exactly, our years are actually inaccurate, moreso as time goes on.
