Leap seconds

Did you know that 2009 is one second shorter than 2008? And you thought leap years are cool.

On related news, I find it astonishing that I have to manually set the time on my mac and iphone - and to top it all up, I have a nagging suspicion that both clocks are actually slow.

    I was under the impression that 2009 is a full day shorter than 2008.

    Yea, but its the missing second that dramatically ups the cool factor.
