    But science might care that I have a mechanical alarm clock and if I move the hands in their 60:1 ratio, they do cross exactly 11 times in 12 hours. This is a ratio of 1.0909090909... This means to...

    Online, most say 22 times per day. This if rounded is a 17% (22/24) differential which fits into my theory of 10/12 or 5/6 which is (if rounded) = 83%. Which is about the ratio of my and my friend's...
