Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

Have I not told thee that there is no such thing as magic, though there is such a thing as understanding and applying the forces which are in Nature?Of course,
Don't believe everything you read on the internet.However the wiring diagrams and other tech for the clock seem quite plausible.

That peduncle thing would be a tail, to the rest of us. You could count the scales; or you could count its teeth, which are not there.Colorado River Cutthroat Trout (Oncorhynchus clarkii pleuriticus) - Behnke (1992) and Baxter and Stone (1995) observed that this subspecies had 170-205+ scales in the lateral series, and 38-48+ scales above the lateral line, which were greater than counts in all other subspecies except greenback cutthroat trout.Rio Grande cutthroat trout possess similar coloration, but usually have fewer scales in and above the lateral line and more irregularly shaped spots on the caudal peduncle.
Rio Grande cutthroat trout have irregular shaped spots that are concentrated behind the dorsal fin (largest fin on the back), smaller less numerous spots located primarily above the lateral line anterior to the dorsal fin, and basibranchial (located on the floor of the gill chamber) teeth that are minute or absent.So I will boldly proclaim that we caught some Rio Grande cutthroats in their native drainage. At the very worst that statement is nearly right, which is as close as I expect to get to the truth in the time left to me.
