The Perfect Clock for Nerds..

I’m happy to know I’m not a nerd, the time I’m trying to decode
that, I think one hour will already pass. (fortunately, the minutes are

I was laughing the moment that clock popped up in my RSS reader. Now I simply need to know where to get one!
Psychotic Apes Says:
lol well it’s 1 step above the binary clock.
That sucks, the binary clock is way better.
I solved them all at first glance, i’m sure you can too if you just try.
It’s a funny clock and I want buy one for my friend on
interracialmatch.com, and co you think it is neccesary? So how to get
Alex in T.O. Says:
That’s one insane clock.
Just look at 3 o’clock-radical 9 +9-9!
It looks sorta like Kakashi sensei’s new SHARINGAN!
Now that… was a nerdy comment.

It’s interesting I gotta say, but I sure would prefer a radian watch over that. Maybe I’m TOO nerdy…
« 9 said »« 9 said »« 9 Says:
it’s kind of clever how the clock seems to use 3 9′s to express
all the numbers- except for the number “1″. it looks like 1 o’clock is
expressed as (9/9), or am i missing something because of the reflection?
how about radical 9 times radical nine over nine?
They fudged it a bit for the number 7…the equation actually equals 6.99999999999… but still a cool clock.
The clock has 1=(9/9)^9.
6 + .9 repeating is equivalent to 6 + 1
also, maybe 1 is (.9 repeating / 9) * 9 ? that would use 3 9s
I think #1 is (9/9)^9, so it does use 3 9′s.
6.9999999… IS 7, for an infinite series of 9s, and that’s what 9-bar is.
I found that the square root of 9! minus nine over nine is really
601.3952191 and whatever my calculator missed. It’s still a good idea
It’s (sqrt(9))! – (9/9). So 3! which is 1 x 2 x 3 or 6, minus 9/9 or 1. So it does in fact come out to 5.
6.9, 6.99, 6.99…9999999, 6 + .9 repeating for an infinity of trailing 9s is *not* 7. It’s just infinitesimally close to 7, and it gets closer with each additional 9.
You math geeks should be ashamed. Go stand in your corner.
Also, there’s a more complex diagonalization and cardinality
proofs to accomplish the same thing. They have the same end result as
the above proof which is used to find the actual value of repeating
this clock has made me depressed because i was able to work them out easily!!

Also, Emilie, just because root(9) is 3, root(.9) is NOT .3 :
it’s (3/root(10)), which is some big decimal thingy. The reason being
that .9 is 9/10, so root(x/y) = root(x)/root(y) = root(9)/root(10) =
3/root(10). et voila. it all works out (and 6.9 recurring IS equal to 7,
it’s been proven above.)
