Elder son, Adam, gave me a pocket watch. The cover is stamped with a scene of flying ducks. Anytime I want to know what time it is, I can take a peek and see. It is a quartz watch.
Years ago, I used to buy a Timex "Bullseye" pocket watch every three months for $3.75 because, no matter what kind or price watch I bought, I never could get a watch to last more than 3 months.
When the quartz watches came out, all of a sudden watches started lasting over a year. Some of the modern world is really great. Maybe they could come up with quartz cigarettes or lithium beer or something.
Fortunately, ducks are for the most part still acceptable life-forms.
If you haven't checked it out yet, you can experience 1984 on google...... "street view" is what you want. They don't have street views for very many places but it is a little bit neat.
