    New Year's will be One Second Late

    http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNew...26?hub=SciTech

    Start of New Year to be delayed -- by a second

    2005 will last a little longer than usual -- one second to be precise.

    A leap second will be added into the world's clocks just before midnight to match up the clocks with the earth's rotation.

    Don't worry...just make sure your kiss goes 1 second longer so you will be covered.

    (AP) For those wishing to witness the event, the process is relatively simple and requires a stop watch and a common cell phone with a time display.

    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.

    10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord.

    the earth's rotation is slowing down, so these correction seconds are having to be added more frequently.
