A country wide network of large tethered blimps with digital clocks upon them, easily visible whenever you look up.

       Blimps clogging up our already clogged airways and blocking our sun? Maybe we could just look at the zillions of clocks already around us.

       I generaly find that clocks outside only appear in town centers where the town hall or church is.

       perhaps a personal blimp is what is called for. your very own time-keeping blimp attached to your elf with a length of string. park it outside buildings in the manner of horses in the olde wild west.

       I'm with her. The beautiful hot air balloons and the assorted other flyers of the open airspace should not have to face the perile of the "Time Blimp" blumping into them.

       perile? kazzies blimps are beautiful too. did he not mention?

       blimps are to balloons what butts are too butter, and no, no word of the blimps being beautiful, baker.

       [po] the idea of these being big things that hang around of their own accord is so that I don't have to remember things like these (watch).

Blimps are beautiful, they're all graceful and ponderous and stuff.
I suppose they could have large analouge clocks on the side instead of digital, digital would be easier to see at night thats all.

       analouche? niice. wearing a watch is a habit I lost years ago.

       No no sky pollution! There must be a better way.

       "Laser projected on the undersurface of clouds..." - or on the moon!   

       What about a large array of mirrors in orbit that could spell out the time? <g>

       blimp or dirigible?

       how about a small clock that sombody could wear on their lower arm wrist region, this would need some kind of strap like maby a belt style strap or velcro maby, I'm sure that our technology is advanced enough to make a clock this small, now call me crazy but I think this might just work.

       You're crazy. Only women would wear these 'lower-arm clocks' that you speak of. The gentlemens version must be on a very long and expensive chain, so that it can fit in our waist-coats correctly.

       But for the wrist-clock idea, how would you ensure that your arm is held completely horizontally in line with the sun?
