    What are you doing with your Leap Second?

    It hits at 7:59:60 EDT tonight.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson said, "As always, I celebrate my leap seconds with very tiny bottles of champagne."

    I'll have a sip of bourbon and watch my atomic-clock-radio-sync'ed-clock with interest...

    You?

    I'll waste it - just like I do a lot of time in the evenings. However, if I should be on DBR at that time, it will not be a waste. Instead, it will be an extra second of enjoyment - especially if I'm in the "Which DBR Poster Hates UNC the Most" thread.

    I made, and kept, my leap second resolutions.

    Now, back to the bourbon.

    My atomic-sync'ed-clock failed!

    time.gov didn't.

    Enjoying my bourbon...

    Dangit! I blinked and missed it.

    I'm probably being petty in another thread.

    Watch NC basketball highlights from this past season.

    Just kidding - wouldn't waste that much time doing it (if I could even find that much).

    This morning, I decided that I didn't need the leap second today, but I think I can use it on Thursday. I'll wait.

    The Leap Second is totally worth it because of what John Oliver did with it. I give you: http://spendyourleapsecondhere.com/

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.
