* This is when the UTC time standard [atomic adjusted for solar/terrestrial]
got a LEAP SECOND for new years '96! A whole extra second!!! How did you spend it?

According to a Scripps/Howard article which was in the 12/30/95 edition of the San Francisco Examiner, scientists in Adelaide, Australia believe that the earth's day was about 23 hours long at the time of the dinosaurs. So, these leap seconds can add up.

Speaking of time, you'll be 1 billion seconds old when you're 31 yrs, 251 days old (approx 8 months + 11 days), and you'll be 2 billion seconds when you're 63 yrs, 137 days old (approx 4 months + 17 days)!
