    297840 seconds ago was three and a half days ago. Perhaps you were mistaken, unless for you it’s still 1987, in which case there’s some stuff you should know.

  6. I think there are some seriously math deficient bassists here in this thread: :laugh:

    How many seconds are there in a year of 365 days?
    31,536,000 seconds

    You have to do 60 X 60 to get one hour (3600 seconds) Then, you have to get 3600 seconds and multiply it by 24 since there are 24 hours in a day (84600 seconds) Then since there are 365 days in a year you have to do 84600 X 365 and you will get 31,536,000 seconds.
