Fact of the Day: Days Are Longer Than Years

Venus' axis rotates very slowly and a "day" on Venus takes about 243 Earth days to finish. However Venus rotates around the sun (making it a Venus "year") in about 224 Earth days. So a day on Venus is good bit longer than it's year.

If Venus rotates more slowly and women are from Venus, is that why it always takes them so long to get themselves ready to go out? lol
