2008 gets another second

That's how this year's year-end countdown will be like. The International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service (IERS) announced that there will be a leap second added to end this year.

For those who will be reading at 11.59:59pm on 31st Dec 2008, they will get to read another word. If they know speed-read, they will get to glance through another sentence.

For those die-hard romanticists who plan to kiss over-year will have a second longer to swallow the saliva (or whatever) of the other person this year.

I will probably savor another second of sleep :)

What ya gonna do wif dat xtra sec?
