Adding Days to Your Year

Everyone wishes that there were more hours in his day. While I believe it is impossible to create time in the literal sense (If it were possible, I probably couldn't understand the math), I do think that nearly everyone can allocate time more efficiently in order to "make" about an hour more time in a day.

Obviously, this is a leap year. This gives me the opportunity to let everybody know the years that are leap years and those that aren't. Basically, if the last 2 numbers of the year are not 00, then if the last 2 numbers are divisible by 4, then it's a leap year. If the last 2 numbers are 00, then the first 2 numbers must be divisible by 4. Everyone remembers that 2000 was a leap year, but most people are unaware that 1900 was not, nor will 2100 be. It's true, and it's one of those things that's commonly overlooked.
