"Try to place it near an outside wall closest to the direction of Colorado." - Clock owner's Manual

About two weeks ago, the clock in our large conference room suddenly appeared possessed when the handles started churning around and around and around. They wouldn't stop until I took the batteries out.

We thought it was broken and recycled it - Arthur at least, got a few screws out of it.

Another clock, same model, came to the office today, and it turns out that apparent demon-possession is actually par for the course - it's part of the clock attempting to get on standard time with official U.S. gov't time... the manual says if the clock hasn't synchronized within a few days, the Colorado wall might be a better location....
