Clocks around the world were held back for a 'leap second' at midnight on Saturday
Did you set your clocks?

Horologists around the world carried out one of the strangest operations of their profession on Saturday night - they held back time.

The last minute of June 30, 2012 was 61 seconds long with a "leap second" added to compensate for the erratic movement of the Earth.

The brief halting of the second hand compensates for the creeping divergence from solar time - the period required for Earth to complete a day.

Yeah this turned into a major drama here in Oz with planes being held up at airports and thousands of people stranded for hours.

I don't buy the explanation. It was a cover for something else that happened. Of some micro second test to see how much chaos they could create without people catching on to what it was really about.

it was a 'glitch' in the matrix that needed to be corrected. Don't worry about it, continue drinking your kool-aid and taking the red pill
