I imagine most recent clocks use electronics to keep time. As such, it would be based on the frequency (frequency counter in an IC like a 555).

If this happens with multiple clocks, I would suspect that the first one was bad and every one since then has been somebody in your household screwing with you.

I bet KB's got it. Most inexpensive digital clocks use the line frequency for timing, very few use an internal oscillator. Somehow you have it set for 50Hz.

but this has been multiple clocks. Unless the OP recently moved to the states from an area that used 50hz and brought a bunch of clocks with him or he got a really good deal on clocks on a late night tv informercial, I would doubt it was the 50hz/60hz issue.

Personally, I think it has to do with the findings of the Gravity Probe B and it's findings with time space and gravity interrelation. The means used to measure gravity and it's effects on space time have somehow created a time warp in the OP's house and speeded up time in that one room.

I would suggest the OP to refrain from staying in the room for any longer than absolutely necessary as while he is in this time warp, he will age faster just as his clocks have and his life, as observed by an outsider, will quicken until his ultimate demise.

I am not adverse to the space-time continuum theory as I've been ... well, kinda new-agey since Mother 'graduated'.
.
as to being children; attitude is everything in life. If I acted my age I might be accused of being one of the ghosts messing with your clocks.

but, since I don't believe in ghosts, we're down to my theory and some dirty power.

and this has been happening for 15 years? My you have patience.

so, let's get serious.

are you supplied by a public utility company?

have you placed the fast clocks in other rooms and if so, how did they react?

Do you notice any problems or oddities with anything involving electricity?

just to be sure, by digital clocks, you mean the type with LED or LCD display and not the original digital clock that simply had a roll of numbers that spun around like a rolodex (See, I told you I was old. I'm hoping you know what the heck a Rolodex actually is) and there were all of similar type?

have you plugged the clocks into different receptacles in the room? and?

hey, I just happened to think about this:

any correlation to the problem and the Large Hadron Collider? After all, they were concerned about creating black holes.:eek:
