European Clocks off by 6 Minutes

This is quite an incredible story. Who would have thought that this was even possible.

This week, Europe's electric transmission lobby announced that oven, microwave, and alarm clocks across the continent were no longer six minutes slow. How did they get back the lost time? By resolving a grid dispute between Serbia and Kosovo and running the continental grid at a slightly higher frequency than normal.
