Extra Second today on June 30th
"To keep atomic clocks in line with the Earth, June 30 will get an extra second tacked on at the end of the day."
We need Leap Days because of tides and it's braking effect on Earth (resulting in 1.4 milliseconds of braking per day every century).
The extra second will occur at 7:59PM on the East Coast (7:59:60) and 4:59PM on the West Coast (4:59:60).
What are you planning to do with your extra second? As for me... uhh... give me a second...
