    Corpus clock

    Visited this 1.8 million British pound clock in Cambridge UK and was fascinated by its story. It’s a complicated tale but I’ll just post a pic. Plenty of resources online and youtube pieces to do some easy digging, but I must say that standing on th sidewalk and watching it run was a pleasure. An escapement that gives the word “escape” new meaning...

    Imagine what the wife would say if you brought that home.

    Yes, I’m imagining she’d say, “guess what time it is...time for me to leave!”
