Today The Purging Lutheran is purging a digital watch. It has been in the basement for many years. I think. Did My Marta bring it home from Muncie for helping others?

Sunlight takes 8 minutes and 20 human heartbeats to reach the Earth (hint: if you want to anger the sun, step outside on a sunny day and get in its way so it can not reach the Earth). No clock operating today ever gets the time precisely right but every broken clock gets the time right twice a day. Flavor Flav, American musician, rapper, actor, television personality, and comedian wears over-sized hats and a clock around his neck when performing. Nobody knows why, including him.
Mark 13:32 – But of that day and [that] hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
