Will you miss it?

Tonight one second is to be lost from International Time, due to the gravitational pull of the moon slowing down the rotation speed of the Earth.
What could you have been doing and now won't be able to.
Apparently, in the past when this correction has taken place some disruption to computer systems has occurred.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

one second to be gained surely.
we're adding an extra second, not removing one.
