I didn’t know this was a thing.
But apparently, it is. A thing.
As in a leap year, but just a measly little second.
It doesn’t happen very often, and has all sorts of things to do with the earth spinning and whatnot, and basically has the capability of really messing things up.
As in the last time it happened, Amazon had issues. Issues man. Amazon had issues. Because of one itsy, bitsy, teensy, weensy little second.
At first, when I saw the article on the webpage, I sort of breezed right past it. Then I scrolled back to take a second look. Then I thought mayhaps I should click on said article and figure out if this was something to be concerned about or not.
I’ll spare you all the science-y 411 and get right to the meat of the matter. We’re adding a second to the clock today. And so things could, might, get titchy for a bit. As in, Amazon might have some more “issues.” Or your computer might get irritable. Or the Smartphones might rise up in revolt.
Who knows? Zombie apocalypse virus stuff?
Or then again, maybe nothing will happen. And we’ll all just go along about our business, oblivious to the extra second added to our day.
Me? I’m spending a lot of seconds trying to figure out how I’m going to spend my extra second.
Now…back to regularly scheduled broadcasting.
