"Mork and Mindy" aside, Boulder CO hosts something else very special: the United States reference clock.

Tours of its NIST facility are not available to the general public, but this (cesium-based) clock will neither lose nor gain a second in the next 60,000,000 years.

See http://www.nist.gov/pml/div688/grp50/primary-frequency-standards.cfm if you have further interest.
