it needs more colors or something attractive tho

Not really, it`s like basic middle school math. The square root of nine + nine - nine? If you can`t figure that out, there`s a bigger problem than the clock.

It is the "Triple Nine Society" clock. All of the equations on this clock are made up using three nines.

Thanks :D

Are you seriously saying that you learnt "!" in elementary school? Sure, I stumbled on it and figured it out, but we ain`t never used in in class during elementary.

Notice that each hour is represented by exactly 3 occurrences of the number 9 with different mathematical operators to make the expression equal to the hour.

If you want to buy a clock like this, you can get one here.

2/3=0.66666.....

3/3=0.99999.....

The epicness of this is beyond comprehension.

-,-" I created an account just to reply on this comment. How geek is that? (Btw, I`d buy that clock xD)

.999... is exactly equal to 1.

she`s 16 and still has trouble reading analog clocks

I`d like to see your dog eat that.

No, it`s not retarded. Three nines must be involved. All the time.

Actually, Gax, it looks like the 9th root of nine to the ninth power, but you still get the same effect.

I bet Cirno would like it too, if she could understand it.

No, 5 is right. sqrt(9) is 3, 3 factorial is 6, 6-1 is 5.

(9/9)^9

Or, you know, we could have used logic and worked out that it is a normal 12 hour clock?

[/sarcasm]

But there is.

1/3 + 2/3 = 1

.3333~ + .6666~ = 1

.999~ = 1

No, it comes out as 6.999999999... which is the exact same value as 7.

<<sucks at math

sloppy notation, young man. -1. :-)

Thank you.

.9999999~ is EXACTLY 1; it is equal to one if you were to write to infinity decimal places

Ah well, I guess thats why it`s a nerds clock
