A man was walking near the mental hospital when he realized he was running late for an important meeting, but his watch had stopped. He had no idea if he's on time or not.
In the hospital fence, the man noticed another patient similarly wandering around. After that, he yelled to the patient. "Pardon me, sir, but do you have the time?" asked the man.
After the patient yelled back, he threw himself onto the ground. He then took out a stick and drove it into the ground. After that, he checked the verticality with a carpenter's level.

Through the use of a compass, the patient determined the direction of the north and used a steel ruler to measure the shadow cast by the stick. Afterward, he pulled a slide ruler from his pocket.
In a flash, the patient calculated, then quickly packed up everything and returned to the man. He told him, "It is now precisely two in the afternoon, provided today is December 5, which I think it is."

After seeing the demonstration, the man couldn't help but be impressed and set his watch accordingly. Before he left, the man told the patient what he had done was something truly extraordinary.
The man then asked the patient what he did when it was cloudy or when there was no shadow cast by the stick. The patient held up his wrist and said, "I guess I'll just check my watch."
