Tick Tock… Not a Clock

Today I learned, from an in-flight magazine, that the word clock comes from the Celtic word for bell and that something that keeps time and does NOT ring or clang is technically a timepiece.

Wikipedia agrees.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clock

And I need to add a new category for trivia.  What’s yours?
