Final insult to multiple injuries

I mean, seriously:

On December 31, 2016, a “leap second” will be added to the world’s clocks at 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). This corresponds to 6:59:59 pm Eastern Standard Time, when the extra second will be inserted at the U.S. Naval Observatory’s Master Clock Facility in Washington, DC.

In a better world, we’d already have abandoned the horrors of 2016. Who wanted this year to be even longer?

    It’s to give SMOD one last chance to hit us.

    Yup, my friend Norm died, and Ali, and Prince and Bowie, and another friend’s dying. 2016 SUCKS.
