So while fishing news and blog feeds for something to talk to you guys about today I came across this which is sure to be viral by the end of the day…
My favorite part of this, is when she says (and seriously means it) “This is what society has come to” I spit out my morning coffee and knew I had my blog of the day…
I know a lot of people don’t really know why we have leap year, they just accept it, but every time we have one, it is explained on news and websites around the world, (and also… in school if you listened in class and um didn’t worry about getting two birthdays)
You see kids, our pesky little mudball you call earth, (but my home planet calls DC789F-JK scheduled for termination 2033) doesn’t play by the rules. It revolves around the sun at it’s own pace. While it’s pretty close to 365 days a year it usually comes in about 5 hours and some change off, making it fashionably late all the time. That’s right kids… your earth has got… swagger. (Ugh I hate that word)
So you see angry girl, if we didn’t add that extra day every four years… we would lose about 5 hours and change every year. After fifty years, (if you’re survival instincts could make it that long) You’re calendar would be off about 12 days, after 100 years, about 24 days.
As for the mad scientist who invented Leap Years, well it was introduced by some guy named JULIUS CAESER. You may want to look him up, he has a few knotches under his belt as far as getting stuff done. I mean, he’s no Lady Gaga or Drake, but he was the ruler of Rome, military badass, a writer of Latin prose, had a play written about him by some English guy and pretty much changed society as a whole whose impact we still feel to this day.
I guess what I’m trying to say is, if it came down to passing a bill or convincing the world to give you two birthdays… you might need to make more convincing videos.
Alright Kids, that’s it for the day. Here’s a quarter, now go tell your mom to slap you and for Pete’s sake, do your homework.
