Yay 2008!

Apparently people think so much of 2008 they're going to make it even longer. On top of the leap day we had on February 29, there's going to be another second added to December 31.

Actually, this has nothing to do with the year's popularity. It's just that the earth's rotation is slowing down.

So if you want to know when 2009 starts exactly, you'll have to reset your watches after 6:59:60 p.m. EST on 12/31.
