How will you celebrate the leap second?

Tonight, at 6pm central time (midnight GMT), an extra second will be added to the clock.

The change is needed so that our clocks stay in synch with the earth's rotation, which is slowing down.

I plan on using the time to reflect on the past seven years since the last leap second in 1998, and maybe take a breath.

I blinked my eyes one extra time during the leap second - it made a big difference too. :p

I'm going to get some true insight into what other people think and become a republican for that 1 second.
