If you want to get really technical, it's closer to .2425. On average.

Which is why we have the Leap Second every now and again, right?

The idea of Leap Year birthdays always intrigue me for some reason.

^^ every so often we also have a Leap Second as well.

^My niece was born on February 29, actually. We always make fun of her and say that she’s only 3 years old

i always hated the expression 24/7/365. why would you progress from hours in a day/days in a week/days in a year? that's not how the sequential evolution of that concept works

I think it’s because “52 weeks a year” doesn’t have nearly as good of a ring to it, and 52 on its own doesn’t communicate the concept of a year nearly as well as 365.

And because idioms are inherently silly

Welcome to Misc, Wot24/7/365 :p *leaves a giant pile of marshmallows to jump in*

I am always fascinated by the addition of Leap Seconds... so far 27 leap seconds have been added to our world. The last one was only added a little over a year ago. :D
She lives in the clouds and talks to the birds...

Happiest faerie of VGF.

All the art on that CD is from X5, which includes Mattrex sneaking up on Zero.

I just returned from an impromptu trip to Toys R' Us. I like to go there once and a while just to browse and unwind.

I then found a SNES Classic.

It was just standing there on the shelf. I blinked a couple times to make sure it wasn't a mirage. I double-checked with an employee and he was like "Yeah, this is the last one."

I ran out of there like I had just pulled off a heist after buying it.
