Groundhog Day

It's Groundhog Day 2010.  Which always makes me want to watch the movie Groundhog Day (1993). 

I never thought about it before, but how long did Phil relive the same day?

According to http://www.wolfgnards.com/index.php/2009/06/16/how-long-does-billy-murray-spend-in-grou , it was 8 years, 8 months, and 16 days. But the director, Harold Ramis, says it went on for 10 years: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0107048/faq#.2.1.1

What would I do if I had to live the same day over and over again?   I probably would get real good at all the things I want to learn, but never have the time to do.  I'd probably travel the world because money wouldn't matter anymore.   But, I suppose I'd have to be restricted to places that would take less than a day to get to, because otherwise, I'd be on a plane by the next day rolled around and that wouldn't be any fun.  I'd hope that it would be a good day to live over and over because if I had to re-live a horrible day repeatedly, that would be torture.
