Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

"The Square" by Toop and Badoosh is ruined forever

You know "The Square" by Toop and Badoosh? Well I just realized something.

You adjust the hands of the clock in units of 24 hours.

A clock with hands only has 12 hours.

You may now scream

Neat. Now find me an image of a 24-hour city hall clock. https://wiki.everybodyedits.com/images/c/c0/069_LOL

Re: "The Square" by Toop and Badoosh is ruined forever

A clock with hands has 24 hours. They overlap. That's what AM and PM is for. When you move the clock hands in an interval of more than 12 hours, you're just turning it that many hours ahead, even if it appears only a few hours ahead of where you started in the end.

Well done, now my soul can rest.

Unless the clock has 24 non-overlapping hours or the townsfolk see the clock being adjusted (which would break the illusion), they can't know if the clock is intended to be at AM or PM.

I suppose this isn't even getting into the subject of how gullible the townsfolk are to think the clock is accurate at all. You'd think these people have some slight memory of the time or look at the sky, but maybe the horologist is manipulating the clock and has caused mass insomnia, resulting in less critical thinking from the severely sleep-deprived townsfolk.

Re: "The Square" by Toop and Badoosh is ruined forever

you can just add a rotating hand that does a full rotation every 24 hours
this way, if hour hand shows 12, but day hand shows 6, that means it's 12 pm //forums.everybodyedits.com/img/smilies/cool
