A group of international representatives from across the world gathered in Geneva to debate the controversial leap second adjustment, a system which allows our atomic clocks to remain synchronized with the spinning earth’s natural cycle. Hours were spent discussing the controversial leap second behind locked doors which meant that all in attendance were oblivious to the impending impact of a gigantic world ending meteor which was only 3 minutes 23 seconds away from striking the earth and destroying all living things on the planet in a hellish ball of fire. More specifically 3 minutes 22 seconds without the leap second adjustment.
Apparently the Mayans did not require a leap second to be able to accurately place an event a few thousand years into the future.
When a delegate, just prior to the historic meeting, was jokingly asked by a reporter what the time currently was, he glanced down at his own watch, shrugged and remarked
“Not sure really? I set my watch forward roughly five minutes to make sure I don’t miss the train.”
He then excused himself explaining that he was currently running late and hastily made his way into the building.
Time experts were concerned that if left unaddressed the time as kept by atomic clocks could drift from the earth’s natural cycle by minutes in a mere thousand years time meaning absolute chaos in the future for those millions still reliant on precision sundials.
