Would daily activities such as work and school be possible on a planet with a 12 hour rotation rate?

    Remember - we adapted to Earth's 24-hour day; Earth's day didn't adapt to us. I would imagine a species used to 12-hour days would be as comfortable as we are with 24-hour days...

    a week would be 14 days long and you would work every other day and enjoy a four day weekend.

    Yes. We are used to a 24 hour day. If we had grown up with a 12 hour day we would be equally used to working and sleeping thus.

    Yes it would be possible, with a bit of work in scheduling.

    Sure. Our activities usually don't have anything to do with whether its light or dark outside.

    Why not? Humans are often active during the night. Many people work shifts.

    Yes

    But we would fly off the Earth

    Most insects only live a few days, so to them it probably feels like they lived a long, full life. They do accomplish a lot, including raising a family.

    Of course.

    In such an environment, probably artificial lighting would be used extensively

    or

    the "colonists" would train to work under such conditions - and of course sleeping quarters would have to be "light sealed".

    Consider the Space Station occupants, whose "day" is 90 minutes long.

    Yes we could do 5 hours sleep, 4 hours school and work and 3 hours free time.
