That's not the numeral "3", that's "3!" otherwise known as 3 factorial, which evaluates to 6...

Whoops, I missed which "3" you meant, my bad...

What nerd clock wouldn't be complete without something that nerds could pick apart as some sort of inaccuracy or flaw? :)

If you're not happy with this clock, here are two worthy substitutes:

pop quiz clock: http://www.thinkgeek.com/homeoffice/lights/ac3f/

triple 9 society clock: http://www.cafepress.com/triplenine.2445706

It's supposed to be a clock. My contention is, they should all be numerals.

I have a similar clock on my iPhone called Analog Geek Clock and I like it :)
