Would you rather each Earth day lasted for 48 hours...

...or that each Earth year lasted for 730 days?

Long days or long years?
And just to clarify, I don't mean some government dude or dudette makes an administrative change to how we divide periods of time from now on.  I mean you've been granted the cosmic ability to alter the velocity and momentum of the Earth as it travels through the solar system, causing it to rotate more slowly on its axis or to spin more slowly around the Sun.

So you either opt for long days lasting 48 hours with long nights to go with them, or you opt for long years lasting 730 days with the resulting long summers and long winters.  Or if you live in a tropical part of the world where you don't get summer and winter, then obviously you'd get long dry seasons and long wet seasons.

So which would you go for?  Longer days or longer years?

And for the benefit of anyone new to 'Would You Rather?' you have to chose one or them.  You can't wimp out and say 'neither'.
