How Will You Use Your Leap Second?

Jack Reacher has a clock in his head. For the rest of us, on June 30th, 2015, at 23:59:60 UTC, the world clock will gain an extra second. As best I understand it, this happens because Earth’s rotation around its own axis is slowing down. Very, very, VERY gradually. But still, enough that it makes the […]

Is Jack Reacher Hiding In An Ecocapsule?

Where is Jack Reacher? It’s a little bit odd that he simply shows up somewhere every fall with no explanation for where he’s been, don’t you think? It took ten years to find Osama Bin Laden, perhaps the most wanted criminal on earth. But even he was living somewhere all that time. He wasn’t on […]
