This video was about leap years. For example: A year is 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 45 seconds long but we say that a year is 365 days. Therefore we need to have a leap year every 4 years to keep up to date. I understand the extra day that is added every 4 years is the 29th of February. But shouldn’t then be the 29th of February be the shortest day of the year, because 5 hours, 48 minutes and 45 seconds times 4 is less than 24 hours?

Guess where I am? I am not any where exiting, I am not any where interesting either. I am on the toilet and it is one of those really rusty toilets it wouldn’t be so bad if this toilet was a really clean ones like the ones they have in houses that people clean every day. I am just about to flush it, here goes. AAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!! The toilet has gone crazy. it’s about to be flooded! The water just kept gushing out. But I have  a plan. I run away and pretend I don’t know anything about this unfortunate day.
