Happy Leap Second Everyone!
That’s right! Today we FALL BACK! One second, that is. So tonight, be sure to set your clocks back from 11:59:59pm to 11:59:58pm. Turns out, ever since 1972 we have noticed that the earth’s rotation is gradually slowing down relative to the atomic clock. So every so often we need to add a single second to the calendar year. We have added 25 seconds since 1972 – the last leap second occurring on June 30th 2012.

Good to remember that EVERY SECOND COUNTS!
