Gratuitous Leap Day post

In the over-10-years that I've had this blog, I've posted only once on a Leap Day. Reading it, man, it feels like a long time ago.

I don't remember people calling it Leap Day until this year. Is it a new thing?

Anyway, as one dry wit tweeted today:
Remember, unless you are freelance, today you are providing your services to your employer for absolutely nothing.
I worked pretty hard today, then on the way home from dinner with friends, I stopped and looked at the moon, so I could look for Jupiter and Venus (via @orrh). It is crazy, just crazy, to think that that faint, white blob of light is Jupiter, so damn far away.

Speaking of which, you've seen "The Scale of the Universe 2", haven't you? Haven't you?! My friend Ripper showed it to me and it absolutely blew my mind.

I will now go to sleep with the theme song from Big Bang Theory in my head.
