UNEXPLAINED PHENOMENA.

ONE OF THE atomic clocks at Carnegie-Mellon University consistently resets itself to Newfoundland time at midnight every April 10.

On September 12, 1927, at about 1:15 in the afternoon, a silver Walking Liberty half-dollar left by Mr. Ernest Plinck on the counter of the Standard Diner in Wilkes-Barre, Penna., vanished without a trace.

The “Redbud” tree, Cercis canadensis, has buds that are deep magenta, not red.

A 1975 Dodge Dart in the possession of Miss Rosamund Clifford-Jones of Paris, Va., has the left taillight of a 1975 Plymouth Valiant.

In some provincial colleges and universities, “deconstructionism” is still taken seriously.

Southbound drivers on West Virginia highway 218 invariably burst out laughing at a point 2.4 miles north of Worthington, but are never able afterwards to account for their hilarity.

A German shepherd belonging to Ms. Thaddea Ingraham of Davenport, Iowa, responds only to commands in the Fortran computer programming language.

  1. The Route 218 phenomenon is easily explained—everyone laughs when they leave Farmington.

  2. ONE OF THE atomic clocks at Carnegie-Mellon University consistently resets itself to Newfoundland time at midnight every April 10.

    This provides a means to determine conclusively whether midnight occurs at the beginning of the day (0:00) or at the end (24:00).
