January Fools

Posted: 31.12.08 in Blogging

I noticed an article similar to this on the BBC News website earlier in the month, saying that there will be a “leap second” this year, to ensure our times correspond more directly with the motion of the Earth around the Sun. Therefore you may hear Big Ben chime one second later than you might have expected.

Remember this tonight, or else you may look a fool celebrating 2009 in 2008! Happy New Year everyone!
