    Well, then, in the French railway stations, wouldn’t the trains that left on time be leaving five minutes late?

    So how does Mr. Dey find out he has made a typo as he writes with his eyes?

    Pretty soon everyone will realize all the clock are fast, and act accordingly. I’d like to see the looks on their faces on the day the clocks are secretly reset to the correct time.

    If Fatty Foulkes died aged just 32 then he must have been morbidly obese poor guy.

    Before trains every city had it’s own local time. Then trains standardized for the sake of less confusion in time schedules. For awhile people had to deal with “local time” and “train time” until everyone finally standardized on train time.
    Maybe that’s where the term “getting on track” came from.

    William was probably the goal keeper. Move an inch or two either way and it would be difficult to score.

    At 330lbs he was certainly overweight but it’s 42 years.

    Uh … unless there is some new kind of math I don’t know about, using the given dates, he was 42 yrs. old at death.

    Notice they use “IIII” on a clock instead of “IV”. That is supposed to King Charles doing so he wouldn’t have to pay a clockmaker of something.

    Foulke died in 1916. Wonder if that happened in the trenches

    Ever think, when reading some of these, “I hope that guy isn’t from my country…”

    As for the clocks set fast, bars have done that for years and years, there’s ‘real’ time and ‘bar’ time.
