Why would a clock positioned at about one and a half kilometres above sea level gain time in a year compared to an exact replica clock situated at 85 feet above sea level? In what two cities was there an example of this?

I only have a conjecture. If the meso or thermospehere is located one and a half kilometers above sea level, I'd say these temperatures may tamper with the clocks energy source. But then, the clock would probably be destroyed if it were in the meso or thermosphere so, uh whatever.

Nice stab. I was aiming more along the lines of gravitational force and a certain physicists' thoughts about the Earth's core...

On my return from time away from FunTrivia, I found myself on Level 42. So what better way to celebrate than to write a quick quiz on the band that I was into as a child. Not quick enough it seems - I was on Level 43 by the time I finished!
