The aspiring psychiatrists from various colleges were attending their first siminar on emotional extremes. "Just to establish some parameters," said the professor, to the student from Vanderbilt, "What is the opposite of joy?" "Sadness," said the student.

The ancient Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians divided the day into 24 hours, but their hours were not all the same length.
The day was divided into ten hours of light, two hours of twilight, and twelve hours of darkness. The timing of the hours in a given day depended on the position of the sun, so the hours' lengths changed with the seasons. It was not until the invention of mechanical clocks in the late Middle Ages that the hours were set to identical lengths.
Most of the earliest clocks used a moving shadow to indicate the passage of time. As early as 3500 BC, there were tall, thin stone obelisks whose shadows crossed the surface of a flat plaza over the course of the day. Those, and later sundials, were marked with varying scales of hours for the different seasons. A related device called the Merkhet was developed in Egypt around 600 BC to tell time at night by measuring the movements of stars.
