  1. So, I was browsing through Time Magazine today and saw an add for clocks, and everyone of them had the time set on 10:10. Now out of boredom I Googled 'clocks' and sure enough 9/10 clocks were set on the time 10:10. Creepy eh?

    clocks - Google Image Search

    Anyone else notice weird stuff like that?
     
  2. "Q: WHEN YOU SEE AN AD WITH A CLOCK IN IT THE HANDS ARE ALWAYS
    POSITIONED AT 10:10?

    A: WE CALLED TIMEX FOR YOUR ANSWER AND IT SAYS THE HANDS ON A CLOCK
    ARE PLACED AT TEN-TEN BECAUSE IT'S A CREATIVE STANDARD INDUSTRY.

    TIMEX SAYS THE HANDS ON TIMEPIECES ARE PLACED AT TEN-TEN SO THE
    COMPANY LOGO ON THE FACE WILL BE FRAMED AND NOT BLOCKED BY THE HANDS.
    TIMEX SAYS THE INDUSTRY STANDARD USED TO BE EIGHT-TWENTY BUT THAT
    LOOKED TOO MUCH LIKE A FROWN AND CREATED AN UNHAPPY LOOK.

    TIMEX SAYS IN ITS ADS, THE CLOCK HANDS ARE PLACED AT TEN-NINE AND
    THIRTY SIX SECONDS, EXACTLY."

    Google Answers: Why do all clock/watch ads show the hands at "10 and 2"?

    I was curious lol
     
  3. Thank you. That was going to bother me.
