Clocks in Sicily Mysteriously Jump Ahead

For over a week, the digital clocks in Catania have been perplexing owners by skipping ahead 15 to 20 minutes every day.

The inexplicable time changes caught the attention of two computer technicians in Sicily, who turned to Facebook to confirm the phenomenon.

Posing a question to ask if their friends and colleagues had noticed anything amiss with their clocks and radios established a definite pattern of electronic misbehavior.





The article continues:




Experts in the University of Catania’s electronic engineering department have been unable to give a singular answer to explain the irregularity. The digital misfires could have to do with the network of power generators based in Sicily, or even with an underwater electric cable that is currently under construction.

Sicilian digital clock owners will have to go back to old-fashioned timepieces, or they are destined to be 20 minutes early for all their appointments until the electrical variations can be accounted for.

I didn't know such a thing was possible.

Amazing.
