Time May Be Running Out On Millions Of Clocks

https://www.voanews.com/a/time-may-be-running-out-for-millions-of-clocks/4554376.html


Comments:
Sounds like much ado about not much at all. What with so many Internet enabled devices (and more and more all the time), the exact time can easily be synced with the 'net. I check my own household clocks against that of my computer and adjust them manually, no problem.

At this time, there are four comments under the article; the first guy makes good points, the second two are superfluous , and the fourth one is using it as an excuse to proudly display their TDS.

Seems to me as though Trump is only trying to do what he said he would, cut out as much of the bloated bureaucracy as is possible. Maybe the service is more necessary than I realize, but I seriously doubt they need those 136 people to run it.

Save $26 million here, 26 million there...pretty soon you're talking about some REAL money! -snicker-

Certainly, saw them do it live at the now extinct Capital Center circa June 1975.
I was thinking about all the "time" tunes: "Time Won't Let Me", "Time is On My Side", "Time for Me to Fly", even Clint Black "Killin' Time" (and he's really a rocker at heart, love his rendition of "Long Cool Woman" but decided on the Pink Floyd song b/c I had just seen a video of a black rapper listening to it for the first time and he was flipping out on how awesome it was. I've been meaning to send Sully the link to the video, she's a big Floyd fan, I think.

I haven't been to a concert in a couple of decades. My nephews bought me a ticket if I would take them to see Loverboy back in the mid 80's. Before that...sheesh, a long time. Cheap Trick I think, around '80. To be honest, never cared for them. (I liked to regulate my "smoke" intake) The only concert I regret not going to was The Moody Blues back in the early 90's in Amarillo and nobody hardly showed up to it, I read. I was embarrassed for the city b/c of that. (I had to work, but still thought about calling in sick and going)
And Trump is running out of time. Haha I don't want to say I told you so but c'est la vie!
Manger de la merde, imb├ęcile.
