Want - still not as cool as my friend`s radian clock. That thing starts at the right at 2pi and goes counterclockwise, and the fractions of the circle are marked off in radian measure. Also the pi is tyedye...
Male 1,164
Uhg, I never want to see a factorial and a radical in the same equasion again.
Female 257
lol imagine....a clock.....that did degrees and 12 is a full 360 that would be amazing
Male 34
! is factorial, meaning you multiply all integers below it until you get to 1, so its sqrt(9)=3, 3!= 3*2*1 = 6
Male 2,862
Can someone explain the maths in 5 o`clock, its obviosly a branch I never touched.
Male 535
Amen Gn0m3, and I want this clock.
Female 14
dont know where the numberz are X_X??? Brain goin to explode in 3..2..1 lmfao
Male 420
shoulda made a clock based on the radian circle. that would be awesome
Female 275
i like it
it needs more colors or something attractive tho
Male 1,451
Apparently people don`t get that each number is made up of exactly 3 9`s. That`s the point.
Female 1,566
"this is more like a "I get math and you don`t" kind of invention."

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.

Male 76
Cool design in the middle, fu*k everything else about it.
Male 122
its satan`s office clock, turn it upside down
Male 156
But I thought a mathematician would look for the most direct solution... this is more like a "I get math and you don`t" kind of invention.
Female 579
the number 9 looks reaaally creepy right now.
Male 1,485
FAIL!!!!!
Female 961
looks like the clock my calculus teacher has only his is more complicated
Male 4,745
For those of you saying "The square root of nine+9-9 is stupid, why not just put the square root of nine?" Obviously don`t get this clock.

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

Male 3,425
OMG, I can understand 11! I can understand 11! I`m 1/12 of the way there...
Male 2,855
sq root of 9 minus 9 plus 9 is completely irrelevant, whoever did this clock is an idiot
Male 1
Actually - at 3,4 and 5 o`clock the square roots are fine as they are written. This is because time is considered to be positive and if these particular square roots are negative three the time would be negative as well and that`s insane! <3
Male 9
The square root of nine can actually be either positive three or negative three. To make the equations correct, you`d have to take the absolute value of the square root of nine, or you could take the cubed root of 27 instead. Otherwise, this clock would only really work for Schrodinger.
Female 667
I really want one of these!!!
Male 245
"Everyone who bothered to solve the times is a nerd! There. I ended the flame war."

Thanks :D

Male 73
i want this clock...where can i get one?
Male 2,552
>mystery
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.
Male 160
are any of them complicated? most people can solve all 12 in elementary.
Male 26
...So last night I merely integrated around her singularity but i still got a f-cking residue!!! (yay for math jokes and stuff...sorry)
Female 3,828
lol awesome.
Male 1,226
Cool clock, and I don`t know about you guys but 9 o clock isn`t even complicated =\
Male 363
there should be sixes.
Male 420
ummmmmm, noooo i think your wrong Dextrine. its not just a big pattern.
Male 15,832
FYI, this is an offering from the Triple Nine Society, a high-IQ society whose criterion for membership is a score at or above the 99.9th percentile on a standardized IQ test. (Mensa criterion is the 98th percentile.)

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.

Male 483
1/3=0.33333.....
2/3=0.66666.....
3/3=0.99999.....
Male 2,238
DO WANT.

The epicness of this is beyond comprehension.

Male 1
@MrYouKnow: The ceiling of .9 = 1, so the result is exactly 7.0

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

Male 189
best thing to ever happen to IAB: this
Female 24
it`s awesomeness is beyond my comprehension.
Male 336
The world is Math, and you are all just numbers. The great function will integrate you all.
Male 17
No, 7 o`clock is not 6.99999...
.999... is exactly equal to 1.
Male 736
all these naysayers...hush! this clock does rock
Male 1,045
i`d buy that just to mess with my sister.

she`s 16 and still has trouble reading analog clocks

Female 299
This clock is stupid. I like the one in my school`s math department office. Instead of numbers, it tells you how many radians the hand is at. So, for example, 12:00 is pi/2, 3:00 = 0, 6:00 = 3pi/2, and 9:00 = pi
Male 1,081
7 O`clock is actually 6.999999999999999999
Male 3,755
That`s math for ya. Always making things a lot more complicated than they need to be.
Female 4,197
ugh, I suck at math at the best of times. This clock does my head in :(
Female 285
[quote]Muuuummmm would you help me with my homework clock?[/quote]

I`d like to see your dog eat that.

Female 18
natakalt: i just don`t like nor understand math. I`m not an idiot.
Male 916
"three is just retarded. Why would you put "Sqrt 9 +9-9" you can just put "sqrt9""

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

Male 2,199
damn it, xanadu beat me to it...
Male 2,199
im pretty sure 9:00 is; root 9 of 9 to the 9th power, not square root of 9 squared, since nothing but 9s are used, it would be kinda stupid if 9:00 had 2s included...
Male 516
"9 is not complicated at all...its the square root of 9 squared lol...they cancel each other and you`re left with 9"

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

Male 191
This is actually pretty cool. You could discredit anything said by people who came to visit and didn`t get it. Perfect idiot-finder.
Female 1,697
Muuuummmm would you help me with my homework clock?
Male 1,406
I like this clock.

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

Male 815
9 is not complicated at all...its the square root of 9 squared lol...they cancel each other and you`re left with 9 =P
Male 101
ITS JOHN LENNONS CLOCK!
Male 38
So genocdiex, you`re saying that 6-1 doesnt equal 5?
Male 493
@genocdiex:

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

Female 285
I`m getting a feeling that elphienotfae can`t read clocks without numbers...
Male 81
@ murph89
(9/9)^9
Male 2
5 is wrong ..... lol
Male 81
This is my new favorite thing.
Male 1,002
Man, why you gotta hate guests so much, owner of that clock?
Male 372
No my math teacher has one with the labels in pi radians.
Male 670
epic clock
Male 820
[quote]Everyone who bothered to solve the times is a nerd![/quote]

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

Male 2,148
Everyone arguing about the .9 thing is a douche.
Female 21
Nine is wicked easy.
Male 10,440
Please don`t tell me some of you *don`t* know what the 9th root of 9^9 is...
Female 54
hahaha i want this clock!
Male 22
I want that clock..
Female 158
Everyone who bothered to solve the times is a nerd! There. I ended the flame war.
Male 245
" there is no such thing as .9 infinitely repeating"

But there is.
1/3 + 2/3 = 1
.3333~ + .6666~ = 1
.999~ = 1

Male 245
"The 7 comes out to be 6.9\ fail. "
No, it comes out as 6.999999999... which is the exact same value as 7.
Male 255
Heh
Male 3,842
the last part of 7:00 that says .9 with a line over it should actually say 9/9 because there is no such thing as .9 infinitely repeating, that would be 9/9 which is, of course, 1

Male 191
skeezer, its actually 6.9 repeating, which in some math you can assume as the next whole number.
Male 430
as a future math teacher i love it!
Male 104
Must.. resist.. urge.. to rationalize... denominator..
Male 2,868
lol @ xParanoia
Male 720
The 7 comes out to be 6.9\ fail.
Female 159
*drops on the floor, crying and sucking on thumb* T__T
<<sucks at math
Male 720
9.
Female 767
That clock is so radical.
Male 1,381
WAIT wait wait, is that factorial *under* the radical?

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

Male 83
Hard to see but looks like the 1 spot is 9 choose 9 (they would omit the parentheses otherwise).
Female 43
haha, my bf would love it
Male 243
except for the Factorial you dolt(politikiL), thats logs
Male 678
I would rather have a clock that gives me the sexual position i should be in during that hour!
Male 7,833
i dont know anybody who would actually use this clock
Male 130
Are you people that stupid? This is basic math...
Male 112
NUMBER NINE!
Female 131
my head hurts now :(
Male 403
amazing-WANT
Male 1,093
three is just retarded. Why would you put "Sqrt 9 +9-9" you can just put "sqrt9"
Female 121
I fail.
Male 299
Now I would like for you to consider a clock with those `numbers`, but that spins counter-clockwise. (please ignore the phrasing paradox.)
Thank you.
Male 292
No it`s not .9 repeating equals 1. There are mathematical proofs as to why this is.
Male 1,598
I would consider this the same as a clock that has no numbers on it, you just know from memory where they are. And really, they couldn`t just put "9" there for itself?
Male 245
"7 is an approximation though."

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

Male 237
7 is an approximation though.
Male 34
what`s the point in having a clock if you can`t tell the time with it?

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

Male 1,219
It`s really not that complicated.
Male 373
man i want one
Male 25,416
Look beyond the calculus, witness the image! thus you have the knowledge of time!
Male 1,148
hehe that`s cool... and i can work them out =D
Female 420
This is the single geekiest thing I have seen for a looong time.
Male 4
id get one
Male 3,255
Pretty neat, but the difficulty kinda drops when you realize that just about anyone probably knows what time each section represents just from memory of a regular clock alone.
Female 678
It`s like figuring out time on an acid trip.
Male 2,004
or you just look beyond the numbers and look at the watches arms
Male 373
fail fancys assitant.
Male 1,929
Not the hardest shizzle in the wizzle. I wonder why all the 9s though...
Female 124
I feel smart that I can solve almost all of these.
Female 99
I want that!!!
Male 1,646
awe crap, im losing the game...
