So supposedly, before I moved in with my current roommate, he has this confederate cuckoo clock he kept hanging in his bedroom. It features a confederate solider riding a horse, brandishing a saber and flying a southern flag. Every hour a small set of cannons come out and fire off a few rounds.
He tells me one night him and his wife are laying in bed when the figure of the solider is literally thrown off the clock and hit a wall.
At the time, I lived down the block, so I came by the house and checked the clock out. I kicked the wall, which was pretty solid, the clock stayed in place. I checked the figure, which is mounted via a special clip, so unless someone with fingers pulled it off, working the clip, it wouldn't normally fall off, more or less being thrown a few feet.
Fast forward a few years and my friend is getting divorced now and wants me to move in to help pay his mortgage. I agree and when I move into his house, it's destroyed.
So we spend a few days cleaning the house when we found his old clock. I like it, I think it's neat, I love cuckoo clocks. So I hang it in the living room.
So I come home last night (07/03/15).
This clock has been hanging in the living room for about 2 months, when I come home it's laying on the floor, a few feet away from the spot I hung it. The anchor point still firmly embedded in the wall.
I inspect the clock and it's now broken. I put it on the kitchen table and go into the basement to check my laundry when I hear something hit the floor, upstairs I now discover the clock is on the floor.
Jesus, someone really hates this clock. It is now locked up and secured in a display case in the house.
