As mentioned last night,
another leap second is coming before the end of this year. It's like a bad
joke based on this bad year... everyone who said 2016 can't end one second too
soon is now paying the irony tax. It seems this will come on New Year's Eve at
6:59:59 pm EST, which will be followed by 6:59:60 before the clock hits 7:00 pm.
Hope this doesn't throw off the precise coordination of the countdown to
midnight... Ryan Seacrest's job is hard enough as it is.
