  1. Calculated out, the Earth moves around the Sun in about 365.2422 days.

    The current leap year procedure results in an average year of 365.2425 days (per 400 years).

    In 3,323 years, they would need to skip a leap year to get back in alignment.

  2. I remember reading that at some point, the atomic clocks will need to be adjusted by a second to match up with the Earth’s rotation.

  3. If you are salaried (i.e. paid monthly) you work for free for one day each leap year.

    Feb 29th should be an international holiday.
