america won’t do anything that might have been a good idea someone else had. unless there is money to be made. and they will also do very bad things forever if it enriches someone somewhere financially

carry on then

all americans are the most maximally stupid "people" on earth. you should never treat an american like a human being, only bully and harass them until they shut up forever and go away

i have a big analog wall clock that i wind every week. its chimes are very loud and it'd be pretty bad if it chimed 24 times right when i had fallen asleep (the 12 chimes are already a bit much really).

lol my folks have a 7ft grandfather clock heirloom / hand-down in the front room, it chimes every quarter hour all 24hours (and rings off the hours by count). You soon stop noticing it, but I bet it'd be hell for guests.

years ago one of our bossmasters made an offhand comment about people being late to meetings so one of our well-meaning but colossal dipshit program managers took it on himself to spend 40 kilobucks on a bunch of clocks that sync to a nts server that itself syncs to gps time with a receiver. half the clocks are regular rear end twelve hour faces but half are those hosed up 24-hour timecube clocks and it fucks me up when i glance at one from far enough away that i can see the position of the hands but not immediately make out the numbers.
