What will you do with the extra second this year?

We’ve got some extra time to kill this year!

According to the International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service, based at the Paris Observatory, 2005 will contain an extra second.

The required leap second will be added at the end of 31st December, thus delaying the arrival of 2006 by one second. Although this will be the 23rd such leap second to be added since its introduction at the end of June 1972, this year’s leap second will be the first for seven years.

So, what will you do with your extra second? There’s plenty you can do. After all, one second or less is all the time it would take to…

–Make a list of all the Democrat strategies to defeat terrorism

–Watch Rep. John Conyers wife kick a woman’s ass in a bar fight

–Sentence a scumbag murderer to death and have half of Hollywood show up to protest outside the prison

–Watch the video “Ted Kennedy: The useful years”

–Find three instances of blatant bias in the New York Times

–Meet Maureen Dowd in a bar, look at her feet, and suspect she’s a dude

–Invent something and then have John McCain team up with the Democrat du Jour to regulate it

–Send a pregnant teen into the Senate chamber and watch Barbara Boxer come running out with a coat hanger

–Listen to a flaming liberal go from ordering everybody not to smoke, drink, eat meat, drive SUV’s, display Christian symbols, hunt, fish, shop at Walmart, and attend conservative lectures — to bashing Bush for invasion of privacy

–Successfully counter the lingering effects of Cialis by looking at Helen Thomas

–Witness Bill Clinton going from weepy mourning to “just got my ass tickled” laughter

–Witness Hillary Clinton turn on a dime, switching from “icy cold glare” to “arctic scowl”

–Turn on television camera lights in Los Angeles and get Jesse Jackson on a plane from Chicago

–Read Tom Daschle’s op-ed in the Washington Post and remember why voters kicked him out of the senate

–Announce an anti-war rally and greet an out of breath has-been folk singer
