Having come across this project just now on Twitter, I decided to see how much I can actually write in exactly 29 secs. It is late, I am tired and am short on time but felt that I wanted to contribute to this blog and could definitely spare 29 secs to do so.
—Admissions: the above took just a smidgen of a second over the 29 seconds as I wanted to complete the last sentence! Also, I went back over it and made it legible as a considerable amount of words were linked by a number of ‘m’s as I typed this on my iPad and kept missing the spacebar. A final thing that I’d like to admit to is that it is 11:52 here in Shanghai and I am waiting until midnight, and of course, the 29th February 2012 to post this…it seems appropriate to do so.
Here is a great YouTube video (by epipheo) that I saw on @shamsensei’s Tumblr page: http://shamsensei.tumblr.com/post/18125560422/what-is-leap-year-by-epipheo-rt-tucksoon-edsg it explains the reasons by leap years in a fun and interesting way!
It’s now midnight and the 29th of Feb is here! Submit and good night.
