Wired informs us that human-made clocks are now more precise than the rotation of the earth around the sun.
International Atomic Time — kept by ultraprecise clocks — is gradually out-pacing astronomical time, which is determined by our planet's rotation. (Earth's spin is slowing — what a drag.) So in 1972, the International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service began adding occasional leap seconds. They've done it 23 times, most recently adding an extra "one-Mississippi" on December 31, 2005.
I'm sorry, but doesn't this just mean that all the scientists agreed to a system of time that just wasn't accurate, and now they are having to fix it up?
Now there's a legacy software problem for you. Programmers just love to tell you it's all the previous programmers' fault that the software doesn't work. Now they are blaming God for making the earth rotate around the sun imprecisely?
