Sorry I’m late, but very busy and exhausted…


Let’s see images of weird or interesting clocks. Large and weird is a goal, but I’ll also favor clocks that are extremely hard to tell time by, including some of the insane binary/octal/etc clocks that make nerds feel they are smarter than everyone else Wink .

Edo Period (1603–1868)
Incense Clock

Spread a line of incense powder over a surface using a wooden frame (for alignment) and place time tags at regular intervals to mark time according to the speed at which the incense burns.

By the time you figure out the time, you’re late for work.

Yup…. I see such clocks as weirdly humorous art pieces, because they defy the very intention of being a clock. Clocks are supposed to be able to rapidly tell the viewer what time it is, yet many people have designed “alternative” clocks that do the opposite; they effectively display the time in an openly visible, yet secret, manner. They are a secret code for conveying time information and thus, become some sort of anti-clock.

So, I really like a lot of these entries and give g0ose a very close second for the awkward, but clever, incense clock, but I’m choosing Souichirou as our next Image Boss for this very photogenic and complex clock.


What would you like to see next, Souichirou?

To the younger generation, any analog clock is an “anti-clock.” Teaching 7th Graders I found it shocking to see how many of them cannot read a non-digital clock.

Tulsa OK is vying for Tesla’s pickup truck factory, so the city allowed the “Golden Driller” statue to be redecorated. That’s supposed to be a representation of Elon Musk’s face….

I’d like to annouce G0OSE as the new winner with the super mini cast of the OG Starwars ! I’d also like to mention that raccoon city was very close with the “Charging bull” statue.

I’ll say no more as this is not a discussion thread, but geesh, that statue refit is horrifying… and ironic.

And the statue looks like an emaciated and angry Keanu Reeves.

Why thank you Souichirou.
Please show me Star Wars ‘makes’ – by this I mean an item/vehicle/costume/carving/bbq…. etc that has been made by a fan, fans or artisans.
I’ll start it off with the coolest BBQ in the galaxy and a few others (only the at-at is the entry) – Here is a link to their gallery, astounding! – LINK

The charging bull would have been my pick. Where in the world is that thing located?

Lightbringer: may the exterminator be with you. Wink
