Q: Can your kids read an analog clock in the new tech age?

https://www.ajc.com/places/school/british-schools-are-removing-analog-clocks-from-classrooms-because-kids-can-read-them/FmT45BUpAvoUUjP8C5IM9I/

 

 

British kids can't read a clock, I actually thought this was a fake news story,

 

Somebody please prove this is fake, but it's in my hometown newspaper, The Atlanta Urinal and Constipation, sorry, Atlanta Journal and Constitution.

Ha ha. We teaching ours that at the moment.

I went round the local pen/educational shops two weeks ago to get a wooden clock face with numbers, big hand and small hand.

All I could find was cardboard clocks with 3 hands.

Yup, cant keep it simple in China. Training clocks have 3 hands. With the minute and second hand almost identical.

I can't imagine a school that does not use a clock to teach time, seems like an obvious easy lesson to give.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
