    see the short hand in an analog clock...move?

    Seriously, I've only seen it once when I was 6 or 8??? It's just a rare thing.

    I think your lying, I've never seen it move and I don't believe that it does.

    I think an alternative title for this post would have been "Have you ever..."

    And I'm not lying. I'm really honest. If you don't believe me then don't. I won't go totally insane just to convince you.

    You need to be standing on your head first before you can see it move.

    No way this is just a silly prank to try and get to stare at the clock. Belongs in testing [​IMG]

    Topic title is also too vague. Must have been intended to make people look. [​IMG]

    I've seen it move a lot of times. Just be sure to watch it a minute before midnight. And ta-da, the short one moves too.

    This one time I was sick at school so they sent me to the sick room and all I did was watch the clock. I didn't watch it move very much, but I did watch it move

    Does it move in PAL?

    But on a more serious note, yeah, I've seen it move, but only on my watch.

    I've never cared about it enough to notice it moving.

    Quite a few times. The distance between hours is proportionate to the revolution of the long hand (minutes). So, you would see the short hand exactly in the middle of two numbers when the long hand is at 6.

    Um...what sort of question is this? I see the short (hour?) hand move several times a day. We've had a face clock hanging in the living room forever, and even though I've got a laptop in my room this year, and a phone I always go out to the living room to check the time. And often, since the little kids have to share stuff in 5, 10, or 15 minute increments, I watch the clock to be precise about when its time to pass over a favorite toy.

    @ MystikEkeoz, this is an analog clock
