Leap year 2016 also gets a leap second

2 posts in this topic

My parents got me a watch on one of their recent trips that retails for $30k. I would expect for that price it would automatically adjust for the extra second. Perhaps not, as they got in Vietnam. 


I thought the Gregorian calendar adjusted for the sun taking a tad bit less than 365.25 days to rotate the earth by skipping a leap year every now and again.


Now we've got leap seconds as well? How will the cows know when to be milked and who will compensate me for my faded curtains?
