Leap seconds, in contrast, are completely pointless. They exist because the SI day is slightly shorter than the solar day, by a tiny fraction of a second. This means that, after a few years, the sun will not quite be at its apex precisely at midday. How much is the variation? We've had 24 leap seconds since they were introduced in 1972, but a lot of these were to slowly correct the already-wrong time. In the last decade, we've had two. At that rate, it will take 300 years for the sun to be a minute off. It will take 18,000 years for it to be an hour off. These numbers are slightly wrong. The solar day becomes a bit under 2ms longer every hundred years, so we'd need leap seconds more often later.
Well in that case it's probably easier for Oracle to just buy the Sun.

I'm sorry, but since when is more a fair share?
Since "fair" was the word used and not "equal"

With ample use of strikeouts of course. A lot of the nonsense above is because all of these parts are dependent on other regulation, and you don't have handy href= tags or database lookups to make them human readable. The wiki implementation mentioned by a commenter above would be useful for this reason as well.
Yay, skin cancer!
Yay not having to take Vitamin D supplements or eat Vitamin D fortified foods and drinks!
Uh, I'll take the supplements, you can keep your skin cancer, thanks.
I realize that you probably meant just a moderate, healthy level of exposure, but at the same time, did you forget which website you were on?
Why not? Governments are "For the people, by the people" aren't they?
Slashdot is always good for a laugh.
