[time-nuts] Lord Vetinari wall clock

Such a clock would be "regularly irregular"  in medical jargon. You could put it in a cardiologist's waiting room where patients with rhythm disorders are waiting but it might upset them :-)

I have been tempted to build a (hacked) wall clock (after Lord Vetinari) that has an erratic second hand that sometimes skips ticks and sometimes ticks several times very rapidly but still keeps "correct"
time.   I would love to put one of these up on a doctor's
patient waiting room wall just to see what people's reactions are.
