Amazon cloud to BEND TIME, exist in own time zone for 24 hours


The whole idea of leap seconds is stupid and should be abolished forthwith. We already make do with local time which is set with time zones and varies within the time zone by plus or minus 30 minutes from true earth time at a given location (more or less, depending on the zone, since they use political maps).

Let us wait until we are at least an hour off and create a leap hour several millennia from now. Then we can go back to worrying about the Unix clock rollover in 2038.
