comment What does it cost to write one's own Sefer Torah - and how long would it take?
At $20/hr, that would be be close to $20,000. Puts the price of Sifrei Torah in perspective...

comment Latest shabbat not longest day…?
The sun's movements are precise in and of themselves, since they follow a set of rules with exact precision - more so than any mechanical device, which will slowly deviate from its target measurement. When solar events fail to correlate with our system of timekeeping, that doesn't mean that the sun is less precise than a watch, all it means is that the precise movements of the sun are less uniform than our steady-ticking watches.

comment Latest shabbat not longest day…?
To put it in different terms, the days indeed start getting shorter after June 22, but the times of solar events (sunrise, noon, and sunset) as recorded by our clocks all continue to slide later for a few more days, due to the phenomenon YDK has described. There are many sites that explain this in detail; here's a random one (regarding the opposite case in the winter): curious.astro.cornell.edu/question.php?number=208
