Good story, robatnorcross,

I have a friend like that as well. One evewning a mutual friend said, "Do you ever call him on this?" I replied, "I used to, but he's always right, so I quit calling him on it."

@Eric Tucker - In addition to salesmen giving clocks to power stations, there was a more formal version: the Warren Telechron Master Clock: A very accurate clock movement driving one hand on a clock dial, while a synchronous motor drove an additional hand, so they just had to adjust the generator frequency to keep the one hand on top of the other.
