Remember the clock that I talked about in a previous post? The one that costs about one million pounds and had some of its parts built in a secret underwater military facility? Well, I was walking back from the department at around 2:30 p.m. today and as I walked pass it, I saw this:
The pendulum has stopped, there’s no light whirling around in circles, the chronophage is still.
The clock’s dead.
I saw one student put a dandelion there, much like you’d put flowers on a grave.
It’s not likely that a clock like that will be down for maintenance purposes, especially not a mere few weeks after its unveiling. Still, they’re probably working on it right now, so I guess I’ll check back in a few hours and see how it goes.
