It looks like the gods are playing a prank on us today because they have answered our prayers for more time, but they're just giving us a measly extra second.

That's right. At 9.59 a.m. AEST, there was an extra second in the minute in order for the super-strict timekeepers to align their clocks to the earth's rotation.

It's called a leap second, and people have been taking to Twitter, as you do, to share how they busied themselves with that all-important extra second.
