Or you can enjoy them in advance like we did.

Our favorites so far include Nic Cage punching a woman in the face while dressed as a bear, an upside down sloth making a funny noise and Tim Gunn demanding that you make it work.

Confused? A leap second is occasionally added to atomic time to account for the gradual slowing of the earth’s rotation. The last leap second occurred on June 30, 2012.
