My atomic clock was wrong this morning
 
I have one of those alarm clocks that uses radio signals to pick up the exact time, and this morning around 5am it was telling me the time was 1pm or something around there. Anyone else have this happen? It took a few hours before it started showing the correct time again which kind of worries me since I use it to wake me up in the morning.

Battery low?

You need to contact the Department of Transportation. Inform them your plutonium is low and ask them how one can acquire more.

Nope, it's firmly plugged into the outlet.

That makes the snooze button kinda pointless, eh?

I have one of them satellite clocks that's gone wacky a few times - not just the time, but the date and temp were all screwed up. It reset itself when it did it's next update. Or, I'm running late on my Halloween costume.

I think you should have thrown it against a wall for being wrong.

Cesium decay is allowed to take a break for Christmas too, y'know.

I once had my GPS report that I went over 300 MPH. I'd love to get issued the "ticket" when these are standard on automobiles, and report data to the police...

I mean, it's a Honda Civic, but I don't have a single sticker on it... :shrug:

Nah - the snooze time is simply recalibrated to your newly acquired half-life.


All times are GMT -5. The time now is 05:36 AM.
