Dear 100 Hour Board (Pink Floyd Fan),
[re: Board Question #27542]
You answered my question about never seeing the dark side of the moon. But is it just coincidence that both its axis rotation and orbit time are 27.3 days? Seems a bit odd.
When the moon was designed during Day 4 of the creation, Steve, the ministering angel in charge of entering the moon's paperwork into the computer, accidentally entered 27.3 for both the period of rotation and the orbit time. By the time the mistake was noticed, the project was already running behind schedule, so they decided to leave it that way. Later, this engineering oversight had the serendipitous effect of providing the Ten Tribes a nicely out-of-the-way place to lose themselves in.
