Bizarre. So each Titan local day is 24 local hours long, where an hour
is about 57.4 ksec?

My personal mnemonics: you can be no more than a ksec late for an
appointment in American culture without anyone making a fuss; a Msec is
a reasonable length of time for a single work assignment; a marriage is
doing very well if it lasts a Gsec (mine is at 0.85 Gsec and counting).

Take two turkeys, one goose, four               John Cowan
cabbages, but no duck, and mix them   
together. After one taste, you'll duck
soup the rest of your life.
