Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

My wife has them everywhere. If you count the stove and microwave, 15.

I'm not counting clocks installed on other objects, so 2. His and hers alarm clocks, and both of us have switched over to using phone alarms.

Depends on what you are calling a clock. Between the DVR's, the microwave, stove, computers and actual single purpose machines designed to tell time, that you may call a clock. I have over a dozen.

Too many.

I'll vote for the first person that takes away any 'time change'!

Oh! I forgot my box of Xtals and ceramic resonators!

Thanks to up-to-the-minute tracking, I don't track my package so much as stalk it.

My family and I own Champ's Clock shop, so having around 20 or more in the house is normal for us. Some of my customers have over 100. We have over 1000 on display in our shop and I learned how to walk in it so this is all normal to me.

Stove, Microwave, Wall clock in the Kitchen, Alarm clock in the bedroom, desktop clock in the computer room, clock on the computer itself. Clock in each of the vehicles. Do watches count? if yes, then add 2 for the wife, and 2 for myself. The dog doesn't have any, yet she consistently wakes up at 5:30am regardless of daylight savings time. I think she must have one hidden somewhere, and it's such a bunch of crap.

Wait, what was the question?
