How we all wish we could buy more time, every day. Guess what, today you’ll be granted that wish. When the clock struck 23:59:59 last night, a leap second got added to the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

But due to time difference, in India the extra second would be added on July 1, 2015 at 05:59:59 hours.

So what’s a leap second? It’s an adjustment made to accommodate the slow rotation of the earth. The first leap second was introduced on January 1, 1972.

Now that you’ve got a whole extra second on your hand, we at The Quint thought of things that can be possibly done in a second.

On your mark, ready, steady, go.
