Last one this year. Just about 12 more hours for us and we will jump into 2006. Did you know that 2005 will last 1 second longer? The speed of the Earth rotation is continually changing due to varying weather patterns, geological disturbances and fricton of tides. The day is now 2 miliseconds longer than it was a couple of hundreds years ago and we need this extra leap second to establish the correct time - they estimate that in next 1000 years the difference will be a whole hour! 32 seconds have already been added over the decades, but 2005 will be one second longer than any year since 1998. So, before your first kiss in 2006, wait a second!
I wish all 31,536,000 seconds of new year are filled with joy, health, inner peace and positive energy - for all of you!
