Out of the Blue

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.

R.I.P.: US actress Debbie Reynolds dies grieving for daughter Carrie Fisher.

My dad flew into town to surprise his parents (NSFW).
Carrie Fisher in The Blues Brothers. She was a much better shot with a blaster.

We may be in for a long winter, his post count history is:

space captain 7699 posts before banned

harlock 2999 posts before banned

That brings us to a average of 2,755. Yep, could be a looooooong winter
