What is a Leap Year?



You may have noticed that today is February 29th, sometimes labeled as Leap Day. Even if you haven't, you probably noticed that the Summer Olympics and the U.S. presidential election is happening this year, which means this is a Leap Year. C.G.P. Gray explains why we have a February 29th, but only once every four years. (via Laughing Squid)

Vi Hart and CGP Grey both go full-throttle in their videos. I think that may be because so many similar explanations go too slow and so don't become viral. Gray puts the transcript at his site, in case you miss something.
