Finally, there is a clock that tells time in the same way that a nerd’s mind works. This 8.75″ diameter clock tells time in geek-speak.

Hang it up and find out just how geeky your friends and family are, by seeing if they know all of the references. I’ll explain for those of you who aren’t geeky enough to get it.

Twelve o’clock is for the 12 Doctors. Riker is number One, so that must mean it is one o’clock. Ten Forward is where the Star Trek crew unwinds, so Forward is 10 o’clock, and so on. Get it? This should make a fine piece of nerd decor.

The Nerd Clock is only $23(USD) from Etsy seller LetterThings.

Not so ultimate.

Bottom should be x9=42

uh, wut? 6×9 is 54.

And Arthur Dent’s retort at learning the question, while already knowing the answer was, “Huh, I always thought there was something fundamentally wrong with the universe.”

And *that’s* the punch line for the set up for the joke…

6×7 is 42

Rob is correct, Base13

Rob is referring to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything is 42, which of course makes no sense. So everyone’s trying to figure out what the Question -actually- is so that they can understand what the Answer means. Over the course of the story it’s revealed that the Question is actually “What do you get if you multiply 6 by 9?”, thereby showing that there’s something just fundamentally wrong the universe.

Seriously, I’m disappointed. #nerdfail

Therefore god has 13 fingers.

There’s a book series you need to reread. This is a “nerd” clock, not a “mathematically correct” clock.

It’s obvious the designers of this device and some of the commenters haven’t read the Guide.

Clearly 6×7= 42

but the question was 6×9 and the amswer is always 42.

Embarrassed to say, but I don’t get the 4 kings & Queens. Would anyone care to enlighten me?

Thr kings and querns of Marnia, m8.

Douglas Adams refuted the Base 13 theory as “complete nonsense.” A true Hitchhikers fan would know that, accept this clock as is, and applaud the artist for their wit.

If you solve for X, you would get X=42/7, which equals 6.
