how many times did phil see his shadow?

19 08 2009

For those of you who have never seen it, Groundhog Day deals with the universal fantasy of wanting to relive a moment in time so that you can go back and fix something. In this particular case, Bill Murry gets to relive the same freezing holiday in Punxsutawney, PA over and over again…just in time to hear that there will be six more weeks of winter. During his journey, Phil Connors (Bill Murry) becomes a master of the piano, French poetry, ice sculpture and all the usual plot tropes associated with moral quest of man vs. himself. And comedic gold ensues!

Brilliantly, Wolf Nards conducted a little research based on the film to figure out just how long Phil would have to relive Groundhog Day in order to be a master in the areas previously mentioned. The results were fantastic…8 years, 8 months, and 16 days.
