Today, we gain some time back, finally! But don't blink or you might miss it.

Today, June 30th, we get an extra second! At 8 p.m. Eastern time we'll gain an extra second to make up for the gradual slow down of the Earth's rotation. Instead of the usual 86,400-second Earth rotation, today it'll be 86,401 seconds long.

So what can you do with one extra second?

A lot, as it turns out. The HBO Show 'Last Week Tonight with John Oliver' has set up a web page with the distinct title 'Spend your Leap Second Here', and it offers a series of one second videos which are quite entertaining.

Like TV artist Bob Ross "We'll make a happy little cloud", or Harvey Keitel crying strangely in "Bad Lieutenant"

Have a second? Of course you do!

Go forth and enjoy it!
