Since the tsusami and earthquake in Japan, the earth is no longer a
360 degree circle. It's now 359.7262333 degrees. This means that
from now on, ALL circles are 359.7262333 degrees. This will also
force the time to change on all round clocks. If you have a round
clock, please set your clock back by 0.326666 seconds.

Since the dialog involved shapes I thought the use of the word Globe to
describe the shape of the Earth rather than circle was a good choice.
I think "oblate sphere" is the proper term. Corrections welcome.
I donno. I think "globe" works.

To most people these days it is an imperfect sphere, changing its shape
all the time.
