    Some brit scientists must've beem high on shrooms either this year, or all the other previous years, because they just noticed and imperfection in the current time and decided to add an extra second this year, and probably many other years to come.

    Was wondering what they meant at a big television station about a 1 second difference with Greenwhich.

    60 it is.

    60 ... since the 1 added second is added to UTC+0 ... and since I'm in UTC+1 we'll be adding it just before 01:00, which means next year :P

    Edit: FYI ... the extra second in counting will be only in GMT+0 (aka UTC+0 in winter time) ... if you're behind UTC you'll add it earlier before actual new year and when counting you'll already include that extra second. If you're ahead UTC you'll add that extra second next year.

    Protip: If you read the article, it states that the problem isn't the atomic clocks which lose a second effectively never, but the fact that the earth very slowly is losing rotational speed. They have to periodically add leap seconds to balance it out- similarly the earth doesn't rotate around the sun exactly every 365 days, it takes a littler longer then that so leap days are added to keep solar calenders up to date. Scientists have known that the earths rotation on both it's axis and around the sun suck, so it's not a new discovery.

    The fact that that site considers what should be a fairly uninteresting and well known consequence of solar calendars "strange news" is highly stupid.
    Ehhh, I dunno if I'll stick around. We'll see.
