    Currently, when visitors cross the bridge into Sommaroy, they see a railing covered in wristwatches.
    Oh oh!
    I'm sorted and so not buying any more watches.

    Some people have opinions - The rest of us have taste.

    they should ask mr. teatime
    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    I first read that as "...want to kill me..." and wondered what you had done to piss off Norway!
    The pessimist says it can't get any worse while the optimist says it can.

    Seems kind of nothing more than a publicity stunt. There will be a point where they will need to work with the rest of the world which uses time. As stated in the article there is a ferry there. How would you know when it leaves or arrives with no time? Example two...How do you know when to go to work and when you are done with no time? Example three...since this is a tourist town if a visitor has a diner reservations how do they know when to show up?......
    Cheers,

    Michael

    Tell everyone you saw it on IWL!

    There you go, being all logical and sensible. Just as when we select a watch to wear.
