Dark side of the ...Earth?

My inner geek loves stuff like this

Thus, billions of years from now the Earth will always keep the same face turned toward the Moon, just as the Moon already always keeps the same face turned toward the Earth.

I posit though that by the time the tidal forces equal out, ol' Sol will have petered out and puffed up enough to swallow Mars, so I'm not too concerned about the length of the lunar month just yet.
