What will you do with your extra second?
It’s nice every year when daylight saving time causes our clocks to shift backward, seemingly giving us an extra hour in the day which I always use to catch up on my sleep. But it’s a cruel joke, since that extra hour is always taken away when the time shifts the other direction.
Today, however, we actually DO get extra time in our day…an entire second of it.
A “leap second” will be added to atomic clocks worldwide at 23:59:60 (near midnight) Coordinated Universal Time on December 31, 2008. Read more about the leap second.
Now, you’ve got to consider how you’re going to use the extra time in your day. For us here in Atlanta, it’ll happen right at 7:00pm. Make it good!
