For the longest time I have been asking for an extra hour in the day. It seems that God heard my prayer and is working on it.
The amount of time it takes for the earth to revolve around it’s axis is taking longer and longer. This is due to the gravitational pull of the moon slowing us down ever so slightly. Today at 7pm EST time, scientists will add one more second to our day. it will look like this… 6:59:59 … 6:59:60… 7:00:00 ONE MORE SECOND – what am I going to do with all this time? According to the Chicago Tribune here is how you can observe this phenomenon:
At the precise moment the display reads 6:59 p.m. (EST), start the stopwatch. When the display changes to 7:00, stop the watch. It should read 61 seconds.
There. Your extra second will have been spent. So according to this, I should get an extra hour added to my day in a few million years. Hoorah!
