Jeff Bezos builds 10,000 Year Clock

Jeff Bezos is pretty creative when it comes to spending some of his huge fortune. He is now building a clock inside a mountain that will last for 10,000 years.

I am not sure if the clock Jeff Bezos is funding will have a plate saying, "I Jeff Bezos built this." Future generations might think of Jeff Bezos as a god. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal Amazon founder Jeff Bezos talks about a new project he is funding with over $40 million.

The clock inside a mountain in Texas is like a huge grandfather clock. The clock will play an elaborate cuckoo-like sequence for the anniversary of every year, decade, century, millennium and 10 millennia. In addition Brian Eno composed a daily chime for the 10,000 Year Clock. It will still take several years until this unique clock is finished.
