Ahmed “Clock Kid” Mohamed, student, inventor, world traveler and new chum of the “Butcher of Darfur,” finally has been reunited with his clock, and it feels so good.

As you can see from the photo, Mohamed doesn’t wear a watch, so having his clock back must be quite a relief.
President Obama had invited Mohamed via Twitter to swing by the White House with his “cool clock,” but wouldn’t you just know it: the police in Irving, Texas still had the thing, so their meeting at the White House’s Astronomy Night was limited to a brief chat, probably about super-science that only Bill Nye could translate.
The Mohamed family is packing up and heading to Qatar, where Mohamed will attend the country’s Young Innovators Program. All we can say is, we’d really, really like to be there when he tries to walk through the TSA checkpoint with his clock. Maybe’s he’s made arrangements with the administration to have it put on display at the Smithsonian.
Be sure to set your clock back 1500 years when you move to Qatar. @IStandWithAhmed
