Leap Second


Just in case you did not get your memo from NASA:

Before you go to bed tonight, move your clocks ahead by 1 second.  NASA is adding a leap second tonight.

The last leap second that was added occurred in 2012.  So they don't happen often.  But with a few exceptions, I don't think most people will notice the change.  Still it will be refreshing to know that we will all get an extra second of sleep tonight.
