I have a radio controlled clock. Or had. That is, I still have the clock, but it no longer seems willing to be controlled, neither by radio signal nor manually by me. Or else Someone Out There is seriously messing with Time!
Suddenly this afternoon I noticed that the clock was four hours behind. So I concluded it probably needed a new battery.
After I inserted a new battery, it moved forward a few hours, then stopped. I took out the battery and tried another. Then it moved forward exactly four hours, and stopped.
I took out the battery and reinserted the same one. The clock moved forward another four hours.
We played this game a few more rounds, then I gave up. Evidently there are now only three times: 12 o’clock, 4 o’clock or 8 o’clock.
Just thought you’d like to know…
