UK Gets Extra Pip At Midnight

 In General

I caught a piece on the radio this morning explaining that we’re getting an extra pip at midnight when an extra second is added to this year – a “leap second” if you will.
I have to admit to being half-asleep and a teensy bit hungover, so it didn’t make a great deal of sense, particularly when they tried to explain that the pips “had escaped” earlier in the year (which sounded frankly terrifying in a boring, sciencey kind of a way), so I’ll leave it to someone a bit more coherent than me to explain it…

Happy New Year :-)
