“It’s always darkest before dawn”

 In NCI News

Back at with that Bone to pick



You’ve heard it in speeches, movies. It’s a enlightening phrase to say when someone is going through dark times.

What you don’t know is that this is completely false.

The real fact here is that it is darkest at midnight.

Not just before dawn, think about it; The closer it is to dawn the lighter the sky is going to be.

So why?
My guess is someone was trying to be more metaphorical with their phrases and didn’t stop to think about if what he was saying is true.
Saying things are going to get worse before they get better would the more straightforward thing to say right? It definitely seems more direct and urgent, more than being philosophical anyway.

This is the kind of mis-information I’m fighting weekdays at 12:10 pm on #MidDaysWithDavey
