An inefficient way to track time?

(via MyVogonPoetry)

This is one of many such clocks – watch a clock, updated by the second, tracking time.  Why is this one worth my mentioning?  Because it’s updated via blocks.  That is, every second, a stack of blocks is added to, until the stack has 9 blocks.  Then, that stack is knocked over, the next column gets another block added, and the seconds blocks start stacking again.  Easy to watch, and somehow mesmerizing.
