Make Every (Leap) Second Count

A lot can happen in a second. A bumblebee can beats its wings 200 times. A runner can break the marathon world record. A tweet can be sent that may damage a reputation for life. You can change someone’s entire day.

At midnight tonight, on June 30, 2015, we will all be gifted an extra second … a "leap second." Because Earth's rotation is slowing ever so slightly, we occasionally need to add an extra second to re-sync our super-precise atomic clocks to our planet's rotation.

I thought we’d take this opportunity to ask you, our loyal readers, to think about what you plan to do with this extra second with a fun poll.

Don’t forget, some of the best things in life happen in a single moment. 

Use your leap second wisely!
