    What if they didn't ever do a "leap second" kind of thing, and then it started building up into months, and then we had an extra month?

    And if you were to write the date during that month, would it be 13 or 0? Since it's before the new year? ;o

    well, no.

    the reason we have leap years and seconds is because we count days as 24 hours, when a full earth day is actually only 23h, 56m, and 4s.
    so time gets screwed up anyways.
