Help Me Pick A New Clock

I need to find a new clock for my bedroom.  The current only is nice, has big red letters, but gains about 5 minutes a week.  So I have to pick out a new clock.  So which one do you think I should get?

Nearly perfect!

Probably not good for night-time use.

I’m afraid it would only last one meal, I mean night.

As I get older, it may not be a good idea to show blurry time.

YIKES! Only good for one night, but you won’t need to hit the snooze button.

Hmmmm, there seems to be something slightly odd about this one. Nothing seems that far out of the ordinary when you first look at this clock. Looking closer you may notice the numbers seem a little high. This is because one complete rotation of this clock is equal to the average human lifespan. The clock is an artwork by bertrand planes which uses an ordinary clock slowed down 61320 times to make each minute equal to a year.  One clock, one life….maybe a little too much reality for everyday use.

This clock and a roller coaster have a lot in common.

A blank white board clock.  Could be useful to teach kids about time, or at the very least get some interesting time pieces.

Now we’re talking! A little math in the morning never hurt anyone.

Ummm…maybe I spoke too soon about the math in the morning.

Uh oh…I wonder what happens if I don’t get the correct answer.  Does time unravel?

Let me know which clock you think I should get.
