Tik. Tok. Tik. Tok. Tik. Tok. Tik. Tok. No, we aren’t trying to plug everyone’s favorite video app! We are trying to set the scene for today’s video, one second at a time– which is all about a giant, slow tiking clock…. That is being built by none other than Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos. Yes you heard that right folks, the richest man on the planet (which we are saying because of reports that have been taken by Forbes at the time of writing this video) is heavily involved with the construction of a giant clock that will be located inside of a mountain. It will be 500 feet tall, be well out of the way of the nearest town (reports say that it will be hours from the closest airport), and it will have special chimes for the 1, 10, 100, 1,000, and the 10,000 year anniversary. Oh, and one more fun fact– this thing will tik very, very slowly. Just how slow are we talkin? This clock will only tik once per year. And it’s design looks straight out of your favorite steam-punk themed comic book, or movie! It’s true! Gears and other steam-punk themed ornaments have already been placed on the premises, and it’s only going to get more textured as time goes on! It’s already cost the billionaire a colossal $42 million dollars so far… and it doesn’t look like it’s gonna be finished any time soon. We’ve got the story right here, stick around for a minute, and learn something!
