I stuck a clock into a mouse. Well, it was a bit more involved than that, but that's
it in a nutshell. Well, a mouse-shell actually. So now I have a "cordless" clock in
the shape of an old Optical Sun Microsystems Mouse. It still has a cord - but I will make
the case that it is cordless since it doesn't have to be attached to anything. And I'm not
alone in this loose interpreation of "cordless" either - when you buy a CORDLESS phone,
what do you find in the box? Cords! That's what. One cord to plug the base station
into the phone jack, one cord to plug into an electrica outlet. By my estimation, there
are actually TWO cords in a cordless phone, and just one on a normal non-cordless phone - so,
a cordless phone actually has MORE cords than a corded phone. So anyway, since we all have
no problem accepting this paradox - I maintain my Mouse Clock is also cordless.
Oh yes, and for you collectors out there - note that this was non-functioning mouse destined
for the dustbin when I obtained it - so no emails!
