Leap second - we get one added to our clocks tonight!
Big news everybody - did you hear that we gain an extra second on the clock tonight, just before July 1 officially arrives? I believe it's happening the second before midnight.
Supposedly, this isn't the first "leap second" we've gotten over the years. Leap seconds are added to the clock to accommodate for the fact that the Earth is rotating a bit slower these days. The extra second will help "compensate for variations in the Earth's speed" (http://www.cbsnews.com/news/leap-second-to-be-added-to-the-clock-tuesday/).
I haven't made any plans yet for what I will do with this extra second. Mildred my Cat has decided to take a quickie cat nap. Hopefully I'll be able to come up with something equally celebratory for this special event.
Any of you have any special plans for your extra second?
